Re: Has anyone here tried linux mint?
I have been using Mint 6 for about two weeks and like it a lot. For me, it is better than Ubuntu 8.04. The part I like the best is the DVD player application works right out of the box in my desktop and laptop. Video and sound are great. Had no success with Ubuntu and did a bunch of configuration attempts.
The wireless application for my laptop works right out of the box also.
I use web based email so no email application issues.
No success with webcam but that is a small issue. Ubuntu webcam I had video but no audio. Never solved.
Plus the green background looks better than the brown. Updates are good.
