I have been notified of the troll above - please don't respond to such trolling
Again - a RC will arrive soon if Boo can straighten out the bugs in Kubuntu 9.10 which I think he has done
We may also release a main 8.1 if we manage to get mint4win to work again

So Boo is doing his best, to make a good thing out of it. 8)

Normally I can't hold my interest too long while waiting for a new release. But I gotta say I'm surprised that I stuck it out this long, I can't wait for the release! Awesome work Boo, everyone here appreciates what you do I'm sure. :)

I look forward to (THE) KDE distro of the year!!

I am testing a 64bit iso.
It looks good so far.
I will upload for exploder to test tomorrow.

so hopefully the KDE and KDE64 mint iso's will be released together or only a couple days apart.

nice to read about the recent updates and i hope it turns out as good as the gnome version,which in my view is the simplest and most reliable distro around.

If i can make a suggestion,can the menu be changed to be more easy to use,like in mandriva?

Hey I'm back to uni tomorrow and would really like a shiny Mint KDE to make people go "Ooh, what's that?"
Is this likely?

Doesn't look like it. I have been holding off since before Christmas so that I can put a copy on a friend's laptop for him to try (first experience of linux and all that). I don't want to start him off on something else, but it looks like I will have to. He is on the phone huffing and puffing everyday!

I am thinking I might put simplymepis on it - at least that way I know he will get something that "just works".

If a newbie friend of yours wanted to try linux and mint was not available, what would you give him (must be kde, and something he can then stay with for a good while)?

It doesn't have KDE, but Zorin OS 2.0 looked very clean and easy to use.

I would just give him the Mint main edition, gnome looks nice enough and everything just works out of the box for me :)

Thanks for the suggestion - I really want to keep him on kde because that is what I use and it would help to fix things for him (I am not a gnome man!)

Course I am happy to wait for |Mint 8 kde but you can understand that he can't see what all the fuss is about!

Thanks for the link. I am going to have a look at this one (distro junkie me - I have 4 PCs with at least two distros on each which i mess about with). But I keep my critical PC with Linux Mint and Debian stable only

Oh - OK. If that's the case I'll hang on for my pal's notebook.The irony is - he will never know how lucky he is to get mint 8 kde!

It is a compliment to you good folks that so many people are hanging on rather than changing distros.
