The Mint developers have every reason to be proud of each of the editions, regardless of which one comes "first".
Actually this is not the case of proud It's the case of practical situation. I'm using Mint KDE 14 and suffer from old ubuntu packages cuz Mint 14 based on ubuntu 12.10 which has many deprecated packages. This priority make me feel upset because from my perspective KDE comes first so priority thing is act of injustice.

I don't really convince that Cinnamon is pretty easy for newbies because in many cases the user force to use damn terminal to do some task which are already available in KDE with GUI! so easiness is relative matter and let's don't forget that Windows is very popular than MAC OSx although the last is pretty similar to Cinnamon!

P.S. I don't know why Mint guys didn't discuss default desktop issue but I certainly encourage the idea of considering KDE as default desktop for Mint and the only thing preventing me to going back to openSuSE is proprietary drivers which are included in Mint (default desktop of openSuSE is KDE)[/list]

I know that Cinnamon is a nice desktop environment that Mint can be proud of. Their execution of Cinnamon works well and differentiates the Mint team from all the other distributions. Though I like it, I also prefer KDE. Though there are other KDE centric distributions, Mint does many things well that the others don't. I think OpenSuse 12.3 is a nicely done distribution with lots of eye candy. But getting all the networking stuff working properly is a pain in the butt. Network stuff that runs easily by default in Mint needs to be enabled and configured manually in that OpenSuse. Kubuntu is nice too, but I always like Mint better. The anticipation for the release of Mint KDE 15 in killing me. :)

Same here, been using 13 LTS since it came out and it's been superb.

Then you're not looking hard enough. There's a very popular KDE-centric distro out there that's been in existence for many years which is also GUI-centric. I'll leave you to figure it out.

Indeed, but at 84 it's a right not a trait :mrgreen:

I'm not following why the clearly false assumption that "mint hates KDE" is answered by a few of you with a suggestion to try another distro. Stay on topic please. If you want to discuss other distros that come with KDE, please do so in the chat about Linux forum.

If "a few of you" you're including me, I never suggested the OP try another distro other than to tell the OP he wasn't looking hard enough and I have too much respect for Mint to mentioned another distro by name on their forum.
