Really a fine review. But I wonder, how he managed to install it on a 5 GB partition? At least is his wording about the needed disk space misleading.

The comments below the article ended up in a fight between Windows, OSX and Linux enthusiasts, as has happened more often.
Article is clear about Mint: outstanding OS. Always great to read that.

Every new distro, including Mint, always get good reviews. No exceptions.

I have read plenty of unfavorable reviews about quite a few distros. Mint has earned the good reviews in my mind. :D

Fully agree with good reviews of Mint. But best of Linux distros must have best reviews, not simple "good". "Good" is everything, but Mint is unique of goods :)

That's very high praise for Mint. Steven Vaughan-Nichols has written for decades and plays with just about every OS out there. Great!

I like this part best: "A friend of mine who works for a Linux rival to Mint, said, "Mint makes every other distro look like amateur hour."
Ok, possibly an overstatement but there must be something to it...;-)

He did praise Mint but said nothing that could help a Windows or MacOS user consider it. Article was too short and not much substance.

I don't think the article was meant to be deep or detailed or to interest windows/mac adherents to switch. Its just describing it as a great distro. I think one important point was left out though. I have now loaded LM17.1 and .2 on old and new machines of mine and friends/relatives with cinnamon, xfce, kde (haven't tried MATE) and I am absolutely amazed at the low number of issues I've experienced. Sure I've had a wee bit of trouble shooting to do for certain hardware and bluetooth and I did have a learning curve, but once I've learned how to deal with a few items, it all just works and keeps working. Pretty incredible. So stable. I haven't posted much in the help sections because I so rarely need help. Getting more advanced and setting up virtual machines etc brings me here some but I'm usually reading here just to see what's up and feel connected.

Thanks exploder. I'm going to repost this link along with some others in a new thread. I'm going to ask for a sticky so we can put all our linux news links in one thread. Shame there's no way to post these kind of stories for display on the front page.
