Mint 9 worked great for me. I switched to mint 10 when it came out and have experienced some audio problems. I recently switched from 10 to Mint Debian and love it. Between 9 and 10 I would recomend 9.

I couldn't get 10 to install for some reason. 9 went back in just like normal.

Initially I had partitioned and formatted with EXT3. I've since changed it to EXT4, but I still like Isadora, and run it in three different flavors, four if you count AMD64. (See Signature)

I haven't tried to install 10 again, since the first time. Debian's looking pretty sweet though, but I'm not sure I'm ready for that one yet, and I haven't really had a lot of time to get my hands dirty lately.

Take Care,
Dave

Isadora seems to run much better on my MacBook. I am dual booting with OS X and trying the 64bit version of Mint (Julia), my MacBook seemed quite sluggish and the wireless was not working properly.

A fresh install of Isadora and things are working fine again.

I think it depends the system. I have Julia 64 installed on my T61, and it works better than Isadora.

I have Julia installed on a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop and it has run flawlessly since installed. No complaints from me..

I thought 9 was wonderful but 10 is just as good. Couple of little bits but nothing big. Have 10 running on both my desktop and Dell laptop. Everything works fine. 9 was completely trouble free.... no dramas at all, but love 10 and its look. LMDE can't get used to besides there is lots of stuff and tweaks in the Ubuntu community to use that LMDE doesn't have. :D

Given the ongoing problems (last time I checked ) with the bootup fsck in Mint 9, Mint 10 is the hands down winner for me. The disclaimer is that I'm about 90% complete on building M10.

I'm preferring Julia overall with just one problem..... That is the Start Up Disk Creator tool doesn't seem to work properly on my netbook. :shock: In order to create a usable USB installation I have to go back to Isadora, which means (because I'm unsure about removing a live DVD in order to create the USB drive) I end up with a USB of Isadora. Not a huge problem in the scale of things :lol: I would however like to try LM 10 KDE on USB as I use that (the USB installed Mint) on my twin monitor PC as a way to "cheat" dual-booting with Win7. When using Julia to create a USB drive, the USB will not boot :cry: Has anyone managed to fix this or find a work-around?

Never noticed fsck issues. Never had much luck usb booting either. I am sort of po'd that no one bothered to fix the realtek nic card issue though. cant install anything from a live cd with no network or internet on an emachine with a realtek nic card. For hahas I stuck an old nic card in, no dice there as mint insists on using realtek, god knows why. I've read that disabling apic on boot could resolve that, however, live cd's do not give you that option. go figger

I like both Mint 9 LTS and Mint 10. On the netbook I use Mint 10 because it works well with the wifi chip (on Mint 9 I had to use ndiswrapper) but on the desktop I use Mint 9 because it's a LTS version and I like the idea of a stable release with 3 years of support. I plan to keep Mint 9 LTS until the next LTS release but on the netbook I plan to always keep the latest Mint.

Another good thing about Mint 9 LTS is that it feels lighter than Mint 10 on my netbook and on a Virtualbox on the desktop.

I switched from Mint 8 (which I used over quite a long time and which satisfied me in every aspect) directly to 10, up to now, performance is the same but I prefer the slightly changed design. I also used to run Mint 8 on my netbook, but as startup took quite a long time, I have started trying out Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook edition-so far OK but I think about getting Mint 10 on it, too.

mint 10 because I am a KDE man and mint 9 KDE couldn't even copy a file from my flash disk in mint 9 due to slowness.
