Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

Deborah + Ian is not the kind of operating system I want to use, LOL. So amateurish. I understand many are fanatics about it, one day I may change my mind. My affair now is with Arch. Let's see how long it lasts. So far it's doing great, and not bloody devel packages. If I want something compiled, it's all there already. Not that I will ever do, unless I use AUR.

apt-get was the RPM killer in those early days, but now delta-rpm and presto plugins kill apt in an instant. They have catched up.

I found Debian users to be mostly OS fan-boys. Logo is crap, name is crap. Sorry, open source projects like this should deliver more. Not only stability, but goo d marketing too.
