Linux Mint vs Pinguy OS Review

[ Thanks to kiterunner for this link. ]

"Both distributions aim for a very friendly user-experience and aim for new users, many of whom are probably migrating from Microsoft Windows. Also, both aim to include as much relevant software as possible to make things easier for newbies. Thus, in this test, I'm going to look for polish throughout the process, the applications and drivers included, goodies like desktop effects, clutter (or hopefully a lack thereof), and speed/hardware footprint.

"I'm going to test the live modes of each distribution on a live USB (made in UnetBootin) plugged into my ASUS U30JC laptop. As both are based on Ubuntu and have live sessions supposedly representative of installed sessions, I'm not going to test installation. In the interest of fairness, I will test Pinguy OS first, and then see how Linux Mint stacks up afterwards. Continue reading to see how each distribution fares."
