Sexy indeed...

If only linuxmint became a dress as sexy as the page... the design is still too pop-art, too childish... would be time to get grown up...

http://www.linuxmint.com/mintart/index. ... mitstart=7

is far better than the versions with that too big, too heavy logo (the logo is fine, it's just oversized) and also I like the approach with dominating black background

@ kanishka
Yes but that is not a top priority (but the performance is)

Next on the list is the software portal. The forum will be addressed as well but at a later stage.

I'm out of it for a little while, then I come back and :shock: ! I see the long awaited revamp has happened. It's lighter tone than I thought it would be, but I think I like it even more! Very nice! :D

Very nice, that looks so much more appealing than what we use to have.

It looks very nice. I came over for a gander as my Mepis installed recently karked it. Used Mint before but the website got me hooked - nothing like a pleasing site to draw new users in.

Its great to see we finally have a website that matches the professionalism and slickness of the distro itself.

Although I'm disappointed to see that if anything the new website has made it even harder to find a torrent download of Mint. Who actually downloads huge files from a web link? We need torrent links to be prominently placed on the download page! :evil:

Yes i agree with this, we definitely need to put a link for the torrent on the download page, just think of all the stress it would relieve on the mirrors if it was easier to find
