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.

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.


+1 for that. I don't see why YUM isn't used more often as the base of a distribution.
