And welcome back to Mint - I think Gloria (Mint 6) can be really great

As you know I like to do video and I'm trying to post a "Linux Mint Beryl 3D Desktop with Audio" to the Linux Foundation. They have a best ideas concerning video going on right now.

I'm not sure this will work with the title - Linux Mint Beryl 3D Desktop with Audio.

It seems to keep processing here.

I'll keep trying, and having fun!

I love mint, I have been using it on my laptop and desktop for quite awhile now. I started with mint 3.1, and now use mint 5 on my desktop and just this week, upgraded my laptop to mint 6. Mint is the only Linux system I have been able to get my dvb usb stick to work.

I've been having lots of problems with Sidux on my computer lately so my friend recomended Linux Mint to me so I'll be installing that tonight. I'm feeling pretty optomistic about it.

An excellent reference source for the installation of Mint 6 (Felicia), including a VMWare Server is, "The Perfect Desktop - Linux Mint 6 (Felicia)", at

I was since 2005 a SuSE user, but after a superfriendly advice I switched to Linux Mint.
6 actually.
All I can say...
Wow, what a distro.
After 1 month with it, I'm still amazed as in the first day I installed this jewel.

I have used Windows for years, then at the advice and encouragement from a friend; Switched to Ubuntu 9.04 earlier this year.

After, reading and learning more about Linux OS' . . . I made another switch to LinuxMint-7, this time.

Everything worked, literally right "out of the box." Think I'll stay with it.

It's great to see Linux Mint here. Just two days ago, after many tryouts of other distros, I've found my home with Linux Mint. At first, I was dualbooting with Windows XP Pro, today I put the CD back in and used my whole (40GB) disc, scrapping Windows altogether. And I'm not looking back. I was tired of spending more time maintaining my laptop rather than using it. This is a superb distro and is running great for me. A first class distro!
