feisty-backports?

No more issues so far, but a discovery. Should feisty-backports be added to the list of repositories whose upgrades are examined for inclusion in mint-update? I ask because there seem to be useful things in there which the user will see - most specifically, amarok 1.4.7 (which has worthwhile improve...

Re: OpenSuse 10.3: How does it compare to LinuxMint?

So, we have the GoldMaster final release of OpenSuse 10.3 Here is a direct link for (high speed) downloading it: http://ftp.uni-ulm.de/pub/mirrors/opensuse/distribution/10.3/iso/ A nice comparison between Suse and LinuxMint would be great...

Thanks, Have you ever bought any thing from them? I like classic rock. I didn't see any thing I might like. About a dozen classical CDs. Unfortunately (probably because there is not much money involved) it is mostly smaller groups of instrumentalists involved and the repertoire is generally before ...

Re: Firefox: Aluminium Kai 2

I found this theme for firefox that resembles what you guys are talking about. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/3828/ Aluminium Kai 2 I came across another one which uses the standard FF buttons but is very close to the 2.1 colour scheme and could probably be tweaked easily to match it: Cylence T...
