You can't deny him that right, he can say whatever he likes. It's not his problem if KDE edition is giving Boo problems and it's arrogant of you to expect of others to give a sh^t about it. I too am eagerly waiting for it, though I don't complain as I understand that there are problems.

But how can he demand a certain level of completeness or features, or a certain release date when he hasn't paid anything and therefore the developers don't owe him anything

He is a troll and his post should neither be responded to or talked about.

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

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Linuxmint CE will be based on Kubuntu 9.10 - and that is the problem:

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

So far exploder has given the testing the OK.
Next is clems OK and away we go.

I have started on the 64bit version.
The 64bit packages are done.

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!
