I am so impressed by Mint!

Postby lacey » Sun Jun 06, 2010 9:58 am

I just installed Linux Mint, and Wow!

I have been using Ubuntu since Gutsy, and though I love the distribution overall, every upgrade has been painful. I skipped 8.10 through 9.10 because of hardware that worked fine under Hardy that stopped working under the new releases. As much as I love Ubuntu, there doesn't seem to be a lot of focus on backward compatibility or making things work out of the box. I recently installed Lucid (fresh install), and it was a painful reminder of this. I stumbled on Mint, and decided to give it a go.

Wow! This distro is just plain beautiful. To all of the Mint community, please keep up your hard work. Your fork is bound to catch on.

Thanks for the kind words lacey! I think Ubuntu went overboard with changes, the purple Plymouth theme especially. Clem did an outstanding job with the artwork in Mint 9 and the improvements to the tools were just awesome.
