LMDE AWESOMENESS

Postby timmer1240 » Sun Jan 30, 2011 10:45 am

Ive been using Linux for about a year now was Using Ubuntu 9.10 I decided to give Mint a test ride All I can say is Im really happy with it so far very very very good distro!I liked it so Much I wiped my drive and installed LMDE exclusively!Don't get me wrong I still love Ubuntu its a really good distro but I like that this is a rolling release so its always up to date thanks to all the developers for this Great OS seems funny to me you have to pay for Microsoft and Mint is free Ide rather run Mint!This distro is a Keeper!

Yeah, I'm about to try LMDE but I'm afraid I'll end up just trying out distros instead of actually using the computer. :)
