Linux "Ubuntu is a strong desktop distro, but it falls short for some users in a few areas. Where are the multimedia codecs and DVD support, and what's with all the brown, for heaven's sake? If you'd like multimedia support with a minty fresh theme, try Linux Mint 2.2, an Ubuntu-based distro that throws in support for Flash 9, Windows Media Format, DVDs, MP3s, and troublesome wireless cards."

It seems like people are always forgetting about Ubuntuguide. I had no problems following the instructions there. Everyone can copy-paste.

And for those who don't like the command line, there is EasyUbuntu and Automatix. And let's not forget about the automatic codec installation in Feisty.

And maybe I seem ignorant here, but doesn't Mepis already does everything Mint aims for?
