Linux Mint 10: A Perfect 10?

Postby dedanna1029 » 10 Dec 2010, 21:29

Now that Linux Mint 10 is out, it’s time to upgrade and see what the Minties had to offer. Turns out, Linux Mint 10 is one damn fine distribution. While I can’t say it’s perfect, it’s earned its place at the table of major Linux distros.

This is strictly a matter of taste, but I think that Linux Mint 10 may be the prettiest Linux I’ve seen. Now, I know that isn’t a great reason to pick a distribution — but out of the box, it helps. Especially for those of us who want to convince Windows XP refugees to switch to Linux instead of Windows 7 or Mac OS X. If you’re going to be staring at a system for a few hours — or all day, you want it to look good. Good is relative, and what looks spiffy to an expert user who spends much time at the command line is probably going to be slightly different than what looks good to novice Linux users. Suffice it to say, they’ve done good.

I have only tested this version If they are similar then it could be, if you like apt-get and SUSE menus. :think:
It is a good distro!
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Centos on the server - Arch on the laptop.
