"For a strange reason, Linux Mint did not detect my Wireless adapter, although Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex did. However, Compiz and the web camera worked great.

"I downloaded Skype and installed it while still booted in the live session. This worked well.

"If you happen to recall my Web camera support article, three distros did support this camera device in the last round of testing, including Ubuntu 8.10 and gOS 3, which is another Ubuntu based distro. The third contestant was Fedora 10 Cambridge. What made the three stand out was the fact they were all recently released.

"And now, we have Linux Mint 6.0, also recently released and - Voila! - it has webcam support. As I've written then, the Linux is becoming more and more oriented toward multimedia and gadgetry. Felicia is a testimony to that."
