I found this distribution on a tip from a coworker or else I'd just live the life of plain jane Debian / sometimes Ubuntu for convenience.
This is a nice distro, aptly named mint, thank you. I'll see if I might chip in about the forums.
But there is one thing that I wanted to say, and this is a forums feedback, I could go on about my thoughts on the pros/cons of the search algorithm, but the thing is:
You come on and search for Radeon 7480 and it ignores the key part.
"""Search found 2625 matches: radeon 7480
I'm gonna stick on the D 'cause it's a 7480D and could use another search engine anyway but hey, I'm just sayin'. And P.S. if anybody on here played that The Sims Social game, well, long live March Stamp and R.I.P. The Sims Social game. 'nuff said
