Wow - Linux Mint on Distrowatch

Postby amano » Fri Dec 08, 2006 9:59 am

Select a small timeframe, eg. "7 Days":

The result:

1 openSUSE 2765 >
2 Ubuntu 2392 >
3 Fedora 1357 <
4 Mint 1139 >
5 Debian 1013 <

Congratulations. Linux Mint doesn't seem to be just a niche product.

I found Mint from a random site looking to get w32codecs working on amd64 ubuntu.

I am the sole SysAdmin for a company that does allot of software and video development, and we use some of the MS codecs for a few niche videos. Most of our machines run Ubuntu amd64 because we develop all our software in house and 64 bit is much faster for our purposes. Only downfall and why we must use a few 32bit machines is because of that Windows crap.

Mint is exactly what I am looking for aside it not being 64 bit. If there was a way to preconfigure Mint Bea exactly the way it is but in amd64 land, you would have my devoted loyalty....and some donations.

But all in all 32 bit is just fine because out of the box the only major thing I had to download was g++. Saves me some time and trouble getting everything else working.

Cheers!

Hi,

Fragadelic is looking at a 64bits version of Mint. However, there won't be any until the release of Linux Mint 3.0 (after Ubuntu 7.04 is released).
