Linux Mint 7 (XFCE) Review

[ Thanks to Jim Lynch for this link. ]

"Before I get into this review, please note that I used Release Candidate 1 to do this review. While my experience was quite good, I recommend holding off until a final version is released. Feel free to experiment with RC1 on an extra computer, of course. But I don't recommend using it as your main OS until the final release. You may encounter some bugs otherwise...

"Since this version uses XFCE the requirements should be significantly less for a comfortable experience. If anybody knows exactly what they are please post them in the comments section below. Thanks.

"I had no problems with my install. It took about ten minutes or so and it's as easy as installing the KDE or Gnome versions. At this point doing a Linux Mint install is pretty...ho hum. It's gotten that easy for the most part. Unless you run into some weird hardware snafu you really shouldn't have a problem installing it."
