Re: Convince me to recommend mint

you need to recommend mint 13 with gnome-shell simply because mint is the most user fiendly distribution on the market and they are not afraid to put proprietary software inside.

Re: Is Mint 12 the best Mint ever, better even than 13?

actually, i used mint 12 before mint 13 and i was very happy.....mint 12 was the way to go. (gnome shell+ usefull extention) i was very upset when i saw that mint drop the gnome shell for cinnamon. i continue to think cinnamon is a waste of time and resources. as far as hot corner goes, you can try ...

Re: Mate or Cinnamon?

from my perspective, i have to choose between mate and cinnamon. i installed mint 13 mate edition but after few days i realized that is way behind our times. so, i have installed gnome-shell and i am very happy with my choice. in my point of view, gnome-shell is the most beautiful DE in the market t...

Re: Desktop Freezes Randomly

i can tell you man that i am pissed off. as you can see...linux has only 1-2% of desktop market. the comunity must focus on fewer DE. instead of having 10 DE full of bugs, it is much better to have 3 rock solid DE (xfce, gnome 3, kde) it is very sad for me that mint has no main gnome 3 edition. with...

Re: AMD catalytst drivers performance problems

Re: Using proprietary ATI drivers on Linux Mint 11 LXDE?

why wait for lxde edition when you can use MATE desktop on main edition...it is virtually the same. i can tell you from my experience that video performance has nothing to do with desktop enviroment. so, go ahead and make a live USB and see for yourself how mint 12 can handle 1080p movies on your ma...
