Default Linux Mint 7

****ING ROCKS

Fastest install ever- On top of that it makes this old laptop scream. My other Lappy is a Vista machine. New. Its a dog compared to this 3 year old Laptop.

Plus Mint 7 is WAY user friendly.

Installed it as soon as it was released. Lots of great improvements.

See post #58.

Ever used Ubuntu? How does it compare, I see that mint is also Gnome.

Mint is an Ubuntu spin-off (Mint 7's base set of packages come from Ubuntu 9/Jaunty). Mint improves upon Ubuntu's user-friendly approach. It's a great success in my book!

FYI, Mint isn't completely Gnome-based. Mint's KDE desktop release usually lags a few weeks behind the main Gnome release.

Heard about it but never used it. I've only used Fedora and Arch. Like I said in another post, I really wish Adobe software supported Linux. If it did I would primarily use Linux. I've noticed it becoming more and more user friendly, which is what it needs to get more mainstream and get more support. Fedora 11 is out in 6 days or so. I may mess around with that.

Nope, nor the commercial equivalent (forget the name). Some programs work ok, but I need all the programs I use (Flash, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, etc, all CS3) to work flawlessly.

Downloading now, how do you get the "live" version so you can boot right up off the CD to check it out? Or is that a separate program you have to pick up?

If you just burn the ISO you can run it from there
