    Smile How many of you use Linux Mint over Ubuntu?

    I'm interested to see how many and why, if those that do have the time to outline their reasons

    (BTW, I posted this in the Community Cafe as this is as much about Ubuntu as it is about Mint)
    If someone tells you to sudo rm -rf ANYTHING, then DO NOT DO IT!

    Don't run any command with rm in it unless you know EXACTLY what you're doing.

    I'm using Mint. It comes with everything already installed, so I don't have to go hunting for it. And I prefer their update manager.

    I use it and I like it. But I don't think I'll ever get rid of my ubuntu.

    I think Mint is great for some people, but I don't really have a need for it.

    Re: How many of you use Linux Mint over Ubuntu?

    I use Ubuntu heavily altered to suit my preferences. I do most things though the terminal, so it doesn't matter tools they have.

    Re: How many of you use Linux Mint over Ubuntu?

    For new users, I'd recommend Mint, just because it has proprietary codecs and such.

    I kind of like Ubuntu's defaults for the most part, though.

    For now, I'm using Xandros on the Eee, because it works better than Ubuntu (and boots more quickly).
