Thank you. Your intentions were always pretty transparent. Do I smell a troll???

This is the second time Craig10x has said he is leaving the thread, and many times over he keeps coming here to stir the pot. Sure smells like a troll to me...no matter what he writes. ;)

If it walks like a troll, and quacks like a troll...it must be a troll.

Dude, you have to start hanging with different women. Credibility is earned and not a gender based characteristic.
If you don't like it, make something better
If you can't make something better, adapt
If you can't do either ball your panties up and cry.

Complaining is like masticating most anyone can do it.
However doing it in public is really hardcore.

I mentioned at various charts of Top 10 Linux Distributions of 2011 that every contains Chakra Linux.
And Chakra was always consider there like pure KDE progressive distribution with big future potential and one of the most beatiful distro of 2011.
Is somebody here who tried it in the meantime of waiting for LM 12 KDE?
Is it worth of trying?

I did.
As expected I encountered several probs with my hardware which were not easy to tackle.
They do have an active and helpfull forum.

Clem's comment from the Cinnamon announcement post:
We’re also hiring an extra dev. for the whole year of 2012 who will be focusing mostly on KDE (I can’t talk too much about this yet, we’ll make a separate announcement when this is finalized) and so he’ll help iron things out for the stable release.

I predict that KDE will eventually become the main version of Mint. Gnome has gone completely off the deep end. As bad as it was before, it's
even worse now.

The testing iso is only available to the official testing team. You'll have to wait for the release of the RC.

I think Cinnamon will save Gnome. It's already impressive and should be excellent by Mint 13 release.
I was kind of hoping Mint KDE would be Debian. Mepis 11 based on Debian with KDE flies on my netbooks. Kubuntu runs like a slug. Will still check out Mint's KDE version when it's released.

kubuntu not only runs sluggish,the d.e seemed very buggy to me.kubuntu -100.tried the kde-full and it operated the same as kubuntu.im trusting the clem and the gang will create a far better kde version since he's doing a great job with d.e tweaks

The opposite is true for me. Kubuntu 11.10 runs good and fast with no real bugs. The only two issues I have seen is right-click-save as doesn't always work in Firefox and the ghosting on the task bar which goes away once I click the bar..

I don't think the first issue is a firefox issue since it only occurs in Kubuntu..

I have to agree with KBD47 here. I'm not a Gnome fan but I have played around with it after installing Cinnamon and it beats the current Gnome in Mint 12..
