A netbook users review of Linux Mint 8

Jan 12, 2010, 01:32 (2 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to An Anonymous Reader for this link. ]

"Thursday evening I broke my install on my Eee PC 1000HE in such a way that I needed to recover the data from my /home partition and reinstall the OS. I thought that since I'm waiting for EB4 I may as well just install another distribution and play.

"I grabbed a copy of Mint 8, and installed. The installer comes from Ubuntu so there really is no need to rehash it, it works and is relatively bug free.

"Once the installation completed I rebooted and logged into my new system. Upon logging in I was informed that there were dozens of updates which I installed and then I rebooted again (a kernel update was among them). When I landed back at the desktop I found that the Mint team had replaced the traditional gnome menu bar with "Mint Menu" which I promptly replaced."
