Funny that almost all the things he dislikes about Mint are the things that we like about it. He obviously fell in love with the Ubuntu way some time back and doesn't like to change it now.

There's no accounting for taste. I still think Mint is the best distro for a Windows refugee.
Now running a slightly modified Debian Lenny.

At least the reviewer stated why he did not like some things, if he had looked at the settings for the menu more closely he would have seen that the menu can be made smaller. The review did conclude that LinuxMint was a good choice for home use and some of the tools received praise. I do not agree with some of the review of course but I can respect the author for stating what he did not like and why. I expect to see some criticism in reviews every now and then but all in all it was still a favorable review.
