Cheers npap
Long time since I visited the Mint café. Moderation takes time and Mint has grown tremendously so I don't have much time for a virtual café any more...

npap, you surprise me. There are plenty of Greek names that begin with Z:
Zelena (goddess of the moon)
Zenobia
Zera
Zoe
Zosima (lively :D)
to name a few.

also Zelda, Zelma, Zinnia, Zarita, Zabrina.

I also know a girl named Zsa Zsa.

Many to choose from! :D

Mmm, I like Zoe best... Alas, doesn't end with an "a". :cry:
I don't have a solution, but I do admire the problem.

My dear friend Ken,
I was never good in Greek mythology :)
But I think you forgot to mention Zenophobia; it does start with Z and it ends in A :lol:

We will be glad to hear from you from time to time. :)
But what's this about the delay on Daryna Mint E17? :( We have been waiting for it anxiously.

OK, don't worry. We all will be patiently waiting.
Hope everything is OK.
Cheers,

MINT ADDICTION

Post by npap »

A Bad Affliction

To all the addicts of the Mint
Take some suggestions and a hint
So here it is, my first advise
Do not imbibe without some ice

My friends,you have the worst addiction
The most incurable,most horrible affliction
To get your Mint out of the box
You have to get a good detox

The Mint Detoxification Program has been abandoned because of the absence of an adequate number of candidates. :D

The problem is that no one wants the detox program. There are no disadvantages to being a Mint addict, but plenty of advantages! No bad side effects! :mrgreen:

THE E17 ENLIGHTENMENT DESKTOP

Post by npap »

Hola amigos!

Not much has been said about E 17 Enlightenment.
So far I have tested three different versions. Well, what can I say? .... Wundabar!
So fast! So beautiful and pleasing to the eyes! Very configurable and practical. Grandma will love it. :lol:

Eye candy does make a difference in a Linux distribution. And Enlightenment is a paradise. There is such a variety of beautiful desktop backgrounds and themes; not that other distros fall far behind, but one is amazed with the variety offered by such a not-too-well-known version.

Are you bored looking at the same desktop or theme again and again every day? You won't be with Enlightenment.
Download a few different flavors on your desktop and switch themes and backgrounds with just one right click. :o
So, to all you guys with an artistic touch, I say you have come to the right place. Enjoy art combined with functionality.

BTW Our friend Verdegal37's artwork is also available here: http://www.e17-stuff.org/

@npap
Thanks for your nice comments. This upcoming distro won't be abandonned, I haven't seen any proper E17 distro, and thats all me and Maty are aiming for. Elive (A distruction because of the broken structure), gOS (Another disaster and OpenGeu/Geubuntu (Quite decent), weren't all completely polished, and thats what we are trying to make. I personally can't wait to install it on my PC :D, so don't think the developers aren't eager to finish it ;) .

Cheers,
molom

Thanks for your special wallpaper Agust. :D
I am running Enlightenment in my test disk at this moment and I am enjoying it. Waiting anxiously for Daryna E17 though. :)
I didn't know that you are such a good artist. :) Congratulations!

Good work my friend Agust.

@npap
That wallpaper that Agust made is by far the my favourite our of all the art that Agust has made, it makes me feel so calm and relaxed, I don't exactly know how to express it. I hope Agust makes wallpapers that are very similar to that one. I guess he knows I like it because I asked him to make me a personal resolution of 1680x1050.

I'll like to ask or start a conversation, don't know how to start a cafe gang topic.
Do you guys think E17 will revolutionize DE's and probably replace KDE, Gnome and XFCE once its stable and full? Its just a very open question, I wander this because there is no DE that has more eyecandy than KDE and is faster than XFCE at the same time.

Cheers,
molom

Heh, just wanted to say "hi".

And also I'm a half-way-converted Sabayon Linux user who likes Mint because it's so streamlined and doesn't eat up a whole DVD =)

Welcome to the Mint gang Ookami,
As can be seen from your interests, you may be the right person to judge a good Linux distribution; especially the looks of it.
I think that Mint is very appealing besides being functional. I believe appearance helps a distro quite a bit.

Let's hope that Mint E17 will come out soon; Enlightenment seems to be a beautiful desktop.

Cheers,
npap

Hmm, I do love Enlightenment, I emerged it last time I used Sabayon and it rocks as far as I can tell. I'll be one of the first to beta-test the Mint version of course 8)
