I'm running Mint 14 with Cinnamon and I have one bug I wish they would fix. When selecting a new theme the theme will not be there when I restart the machine. I can go to "troubleshoot" and then "reset all settings to default" and then select the theme. Then when I reboot the theme is lost again. In other words the program is not saving the themes properly.

To me, Mate is last years technology. If you need it for your older computer, that's fine. However, I like the newest tech on my newer computer, just like you. :)

Does it have issues with Pentium M's? I know that should I want to upgrade to Ubuntu 12.04 from 11.04 that I would have to download the mini.iso then choose the General Kernel in order to get it working.

If it does not have that issue then I might want to wipe Ubuntu for Mint.

I'm been running the final all evening and it's probably the best version of Mint yet. I said I was finished with Linux but I can see myself installing this one. I am very pleased with it.

*cough*video drivers*cough*

I put Mint Cinnamon on my laptop. As, for some reason, I could not upgrade to Ubuntu 12.10 from 12.04. Oh well, I had nearly nothing on there, and that I did, already had it backed up. Haven't messed with it exclusively, but it's rather nice.

Cinnamon is for far ahead of Unity it's not even funny. Ubuntu 12.10 and Unity crawls on this box while Cinnamon flies. Don't know if any of you guys listen to the Linux Action Show, but they reviewed Mint recently and they loved it.

You may be thinking of LMDE, Linux Mint Debian Edition

I'll test this in hyper-v and hope it doesn't have issues and runs like a dog like ubuntu does...


installed in hyper-v and it was the smoothest distro to get up and running so far... no network wonkies, pointer intergration, however the resolution is limited. mouse acts a bit loopy.... LOL...
