Re: 910 is the pits... Mint is better...

Ok.. here's one thing I'm so upset about with 910... I downloaded Mint-8 image CD, and installed it to a scraper spare hd, for testing...
I added my thousand pix to Home Files.. opened them, selected all, moved them to background, picked one for desktop background, rebooted, and now there's only one pix in background, and the pix file has vanished from Home Flies... 910 is still just pain in the brain, even with the Mint touch... The only option I'm left with is to pull that hd, and install a Mint-7 hd.. and just forget about Mint-8 till they gets it right...

I know I shouldn't drag on this obviously ridiculous thread, but I'll bite here. Style?...really? Just change the theme. Pick one of the two distros, and change the theme. :roll:
it's obvious you can change the theme and adjust it to your taste. I just complain about the fact that ubuntu has much changed in the years, while Mint seems always the same even if much has changed. Lack of fantasy?

Could you please elaborate on what you mean by "Mint seems always the same even if much has changed". I don't understand that statement.

I mean that the "skin" is always quite the same (compare elyssa, gloria, helena..) while, of course, under this skin (that you can modifiy, ok!) much has changed.
