Re: Linux Mint 13 "Maya" RC released!

You can install any additional desktop environments that you want. You can add Cinnamon to a MATE installation, or vice versa (or add KDE, Xfce or whichever you want :)). I also want both running and am running into issues, this is from a post to the announcement blog post, I seem to be having issu...

Re: Linux Mint 13 "Maya" RC released!

Very excited to see this hit the wire. I am loading it up in Virtualbox as I type, and will burn and boot tomorrow for a hardware check. The last two (2) versions had a regression related to the chipset on a Tenda usb wireless NIC that required adding a a blacklist entry, if that is still the same I...

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

Absolutely correct. Everybody's gonna customize things to their own tastes, anyway. For me, the default stuff is almost irrelevant these days; it's kinda funny how people switch distros just because of the default desktop environment instead of just installing something else to use. I switched from...

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

According to your point of view ( 1) good software must have good defaults ), Fedora must be a huge piece of crap (you can't create or edit any document, you can't see any videos, you can't hear MP3, you can't surf the web properly -as you can't visit flash or java based pages), but I can tell you ...

Re: Steam?

This may be quite a bit larger for Linux than just a Steam client (as big a piece of news as that would be), there was also a web chat linked to from a steam forum thread that had a Canonical rep talking about how they had been in contact with Valve to ensure smooth operation on Ubuntu.

Re: Linux Mint 9 "Isadora" RC released!

Just wanted to pipe up and say that Mint has another convert. Me and all the folks I support and convert. i have been sniffing cautiously around mint for a couple of years now as the benefit/gain from stock Ubuntu wasn't seeming compelling enough. I finally, with Mint 8 and enough Ubuntu headaches, ...
