@ colyn -- nice desktop, did you create the wallpaper?

@cra1g321 -- I will keep Mint 9 Gnome main on my laptop for a while, I have installed that edition on computers for others. So I think I need to keep it as a reference point and to have a way to create AptOnCD disks for my mom who is on 36k dial-up and to provide support for the others. For myself I think I will remove Mint 7 from this laptop and replace it LMDE to run along with Mint 9 Gnome and XP.
SYSTEMS:
HP 15-bw0017cl -- Mint 19.3 Cinnamon
Compaq Presario CQ62 -- Mint 17 Cinnamon (support for 80 y/o family members 1st install)

@colyn & @dawngdoc - yh if i had a laptop i would probaly run the debain edition on it then keep gnome editon on my desktop. i remember having dial-up, when i first had the internet, would take ages to load a video but thought it was to amazing to care about the time. Now i get a half decent broadband connection. (Still not fast enough :evil: )

No I found it online while browsing wallpaper sites.

I am however working on a canvas based wallpaper.

I installed mint debian on my laptop and the live CD runs good on my desktop but Mint 9 gnome won't run on my desktop. It freezes up within a few seconds. Can't even keep it running long enough to check the error logs..

Hi all,

I've been trying to stick to KDE and Qt apps. I have succeeded for the most part except for the browser... till now. Rekonq is becoming quite a well rounded browser for KDE.

It would be hard to tell the difference between one distro and another just from screenshots in any case. But I am running KDE as you suspected... just on Arch Linux, not Mint. You could easily configure Mint KDE edition to look just like that. Installing themes and stuff like that is a piece of cake.

@oscar799 Thank you :)
