I would like to add

Loving the Linux Mint 8 with KDE 4 - Im a really distro junkie and was in the Mepis then OpenSuse camp then Fedora 11 (64bit) but it really seemed fast enough running on my PC - Mint just flies and is easy & fast to install!

I bought version 8 Mint form France, its missing stuff so I've stuck with 7 and five nothing else comes near those two.In fact 8 might as well be plain Ubuntu so there's no point going to this one. I will not look for any other versions.

I must privately get on solving the ipwireless Issues ,downloaded some of from south Africa.

As yet to figure it all out, until I'm on-line I wont be recommending Linux use to any one. If I can't get it going on line it at all then it won't be a replacement for windows. (that was the plan, back to tinkering. Hence finding software else were. Since its blocked real smart that is.. (The reason windows wins is because he made it easy , not a university degree to run and install things.)

Ive just installed Linux Mint 8 and have to say the hardware detection is the most impressive I've seen to date. It found my printer, graphics tablet, the full works with no effort on my part. I'm used to a certain of post-install configuration but one click to download the Nvidia driver for my card and it was all done.

I'm really looking forward to giving this distro a run.

I have tried a number of distros and I always come back to Mint. It is the most user friendly of them all in my opinion. I am looking forward to Mint 9. Does anyone know what day in May it will be released? I haven't seen anything posted yet. Thanks.

AFAIK, Ubuntu 10.04 needs to come out first...

While based on Ubuntu ... Mint follows the Debian 'stable' philosophy, of ... "it's ready, when it's ready"

Unfortunately, unlike Ubuntu, Mint does not have a huge staff of Developers.

The Gnome desktop Edition of Mint, has traditionally been the first release to follow Ubuntu.
Last time LinuxMint-8 Main (Gnome) was release 10 days after Ubuntu 9.10 came out.

Followed by KDE, then Fluxbox and Xfce ... and just recently the premiere edition of Mint LXDE.
As the Mint Devs for each corresponding version/edition finish working on it and are satisfied that this is the best they can do; they submit it, to Clem for testing.

Clem (Mint founder and head-developer) does not release Alpha or Beta releases of Mint. A new edition of Mint is only released to the public, after many Quality Checks by Clem and the other Mint Devs.

Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 is due to be released on April 29th ... not that far away. Be looking for Mint-9 Isadora shortly, thereafter.

I'm actually getting some work done instead of just monkeying around with trying to fix things first. As a former boss used to say... "It's nice when you can actually work WITH the tools instead of just working ON the tools!"

KDE has never worked for me. I have tried it a number of times and every time it knocks out my wifi. As you said, Gnome is rock solid and I'll stick with it. I am anxiously awaiting Mint 9 to see what the changes are. I love me some Linux Mint!!
