Linux I volunteer as tech support for a small organization. For years we relied on Ubuntu on our desktops, but the users didn't like it when Ubuntu switched to the Unity interface. This article tells about our search for a replacement and why we decided on Xfce running atop Linux Mint.

Multi-Monitor support

I currently use SolydK (a fork of Mint LMDE when they stopped supporting KDE). My primary reason for going with KDE was better support and control for multiple monitors. I can have different backgrounds on different monitors for example without resorting to NVIDIA/ATI config wackiness.

My only gripe right now is I have a high resolution monitor (27") and the fonts look terrible/unreadable at smaller sizes.

I also prefer the mint "LMDE" editions which allow for rolling upgrades instead of "backup/install/restore".

To Ubuntu's credit their package management system is really easy (for simple configs!) when upgrading to a newer release.
