If you don't know why "it crashed" your Mint 10 then how do you know it's "very defective?" I have Fedora 15 installed here alongside several other distros; no problems.

@MALsPa, I think you will find he came across that most persistent of computer bugs called "operator error"!! Seems to affect all sorts of systems?! :)

Likewise, I have Fedora 15 running perfectly happily on the test machine with 8 or 9 other distros. I don't particularly like it, but that's another story altogether.

cheers,
rhodry.
