What distro to try?

I have two blank CDs laying around. One is reserved for Elyssa Mint 5.0. That means I have one left. One. And I want to use it, and I want to use it well. I want to use it to try a Linux distribution that I have never tried before. Anyways, I don't know which one to try. I don't really care so much ...

Re: These (Minty) Points of Data (UPDATED)

Okay, here's the update! Now all in an easy-to-download zip archive, the improved version fixes the perspective of the text and the overall quality of the KDE version.

Romeo mint problem

Not so much a problem as it is an annoyance.. For some reason the mintInstall shows a package, level three, named "package", new version "new version", old version "old version", discription "discription", etc. If it tries to install it nothing really happens... But why is there an upgrade listed li...

Re: AMD Phenom

Pienso que debe tratar de usar Linux Mint, porque puede componer muchos problemas con la tarjeta de red. Quizás debe tratar de usar Ubuntu o Mint sin los dos tarjetas de video. Puede funcionar la maquina sin uno de los dos tarjetas de video? Primero necesitamos saber exactamente lo que es la cosa qu...

Re: Complete Graphical Overhaul for Mint 6.0

Changing the color of the green (if possible) is a must. That green is a bit to light for my tastes and I would love to be able to change it. Of course I'll probably get a different theme in mint even if the default is pretty decent; a huge part about the default is to just stand up against other di...

Re: These (Minty) Points of Data

Alright! Thanks for all the feedback! I'll be sure to fix everything well before the week is up. (I'm pretty sloppy with the perspective tool...)
