Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ah, it's that time of the year again. We already had this up on the sidebar, but I figured we'd turn it into a proper front page item - mostly because I want to discuss the move by the Ubuntu team to no longer install GNOME 2 as the 'classic' desktop option - which pretty much ends any and all involvement for me with Ubuntu (KDE 4 here I come). There's more to this than just that, of course, so those of you who do like Unity still have enough reason to upgrade.

Linux Mint has been better than Ubuntu for nearly 4 years now. If you haven't tried it yet, stop what you're doing and give it a fair and unbiased shot. I do everything in Mint, install it everywhere I go, and also help newbies become evangelists.

Wii Emulation and Mario Kart? Check.
Super stable Gnome 2 Desktop? Check.
Libre Office, Firefox, Transmission? Check.
VLC, OpenShot, Gimp, and Cheese? Check.

The only problem with Mint is Brasero as the default CD burner. But there are 3 or 4 other options VERY easily installable either in the FANTASTIC software manager, or via the terminal and old school synaptic.

Linux Desktop is here, and it's called Mint.
