I will admit I wrote the critical reception part. I have included as many citations as I felt was needed. The thing is, when I wrote it, there weren't many LM reviews, and I had to make do with the links I had. I felt it was pointless to reference the same links over and over again.
Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
When a problem is solved, please add [SOLVED] to your thread title.

Ok, until a week my work will be done, just expand on the original Portuguese language.
I think that is important to keep all article citations as impersonal mode.
What u think to use an automatic translation, with many linguistic adaptations?

Cheers :mrgreen:

Well, I done the enhancement on the Wikipedia Portuguese!
I quickly made google translate, and rearranged the translated words.
And, I want to use the position on distrowatch in all wikipedia pages about Linux Mint (Linux Mint -> 4th); how to do it? :idea:

I have some suggestions to make it more friendly and informative to new/potential users. If other people agree I'd like to go ahead and make these changes:

* Move 'Branches' and maybe 'Editions' further down the page, and move 'Mint tools' and 'Comparison with Ubuntu' up, as I think that will better reflect what a potential user is curious about.
* Remove the third bullet point (about mint4win) and instead do a brief dedicated 'Installation' section.
* It seems like the 'Critical Reception' section has been removed. But there are now plenty of good and balanced reviews of Helena, so maybe it could be replaced?
