Re: What eddition should I choose?

Thank you all for you opinions and guidance. I have had a play with mint 10, 11 lmde and xfce. Honestly I can say I am in love with xfce. All of these editions were fantastic in their own rights but xfce seemed a lot quicker and easier for me to customise. I also like the fact that it is a rolling d...

Re: What is your preferred web browser?

Mozilla Firefox. It's open-source, it's fast, it's customisable, it works with nearly anything on the Web. Opera comes in close second. It's as good as Firefox, albeit it may struggle with some pages or web content. It's also not open-source, which could be a detriment for some people,but not for m...

Re: Why do you like LM 11 over 10?

I myself have just migrated from 10 to 11. The only reason is I tested 10 for 6 months to convince my family that m$ os is not the only os out there. From a first look I.e. I have only had 11 installed for 1 day, there is no real difference for what I use it for (Internet, emails, media). The only r...

Re: What eddition should I choose?

A fantastic insight many thanks TBABill. I think you are all correct, use Mint until I get more of an understanding then try LMDE. I am going to try mint 11 as I have been trialling mint 10 for the last 6 months. If i don’t like it then finally try LTS, else fall back to mint 10. Thank you all for y...

Re: What eddition should I choose?

Thank you all for your advice and opinions. I think from what I am reading that whilst LMDE is fast and beneficial mint 11 is a lot more reliable for a newb like me and my kit is fast enough not to really have to care about speed. The unetbootin suggestion is a very good one, but my main aim is to i...

MINT is a breath of fresh air

Hello All, I am new to Mint, and I can categorically say "I LOVE IT". I used to use Linux about 10 years ago now and decided to switch back after being fed up with windows slowing down and not being that exciting. I tried LMDE first, which was great and very fast but unfortunately was too low in fat...
