Ok, newbie here

Postby trondjac » Sat Oct 27, 2007 12:56 pm

Hi there guys and girls.
I would describe me very new to this linux world. I Just downloaded ubuntu and I'm using it now.

I want to install this Mint on my laptop instead. But what should I install, Daryna or Celena?

I really like to look of the mint os. I can't wait to try it out :D

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to Mint trondjac
I'd say wait a week or two and then install Daryna - looks very promising so far
A few quirks, easy to overcome and it's installed and ready

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Ok, thanks for the replay.

But if I install the beta of Daryna now, will I run into a lot of problems, or will it work ok, but not with all new features, or I'm I totaly lost?

There's a chance that the new beta could be unstable for you since there's a lot of new features that haven't been fully tested yet. With that said, so far it appears that nobody has been having any major problems with the new beta, so it's really up to you.

I personally will usually way to install a new release on my computer until after a fully stable version has been released and will instead play with the beta versions in a virtual machine using virtualbox.

I've been playing with Daryna on a duel boot system with Ubuntu and have to say that, so far, I have found it very stable.
