The RC is beautiful. No problems at all here. Nice and zippy, too. :D

It's great. No issues. Would be nice if the Driver Manager actually worked, but that's been an issue since Ubuntu changed things in 12.10.
This is my Linux distro. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

The RC actually fixed a few bugs on my hardware that I had in 14, and it runs so fast and smooth, it's great.

I have not been able to withstand, and I ended up downloading Linux Mint 15 RC Mate and Cinnamon versions to test them a bit. I've was pleasantly surprised, both versions are wonderful, excellent work (Mate excellent as always, and Cinnamon has improved a lot)......

The only downside of these versions is their poor support time (in January of 2014 and will not receive more updates). A shame !!!! The Linux Mint Team would have to check this, from what I've seen I think they will. Now, I'm waiting to test Linux Mint 15 KDE RC (my favorite issue). Best regards.

There's one rather obvious problem I've noticed with the RC now that I've used it for a bit.

Since the new "mintsources" does not show a list of the "Official" repos, the Medibuntu repos entries are no longer shown anywhere in "mintsources" even though it's there and enabled. Unfortunately, the "Medibuntu" download server is frequently off-line preventing a complete refresh of the package cache when opening MintUpdate. Now there's no way to open Software Sources (mintsources) and un-check the Medibuntu repositories as it is not listed, you have to manually edit your source file to disable it. Anyone else notice this?

Looking at the roadmap, all the issues so far identified for mintSources have already been handled: https://github.com/linuxmint/Roadmap/co ... f3b0fa5489. And fixes done are shown on the recent commits: https://github.com/linuxmint/mintsources/commits/master. Doesn't look like this issue is in there, so perhaps note it on the blog (which is where issues for the RC should be reported).
