Linux Mint 6 Felicia
- Linux Mint comes with Gnome desktop but other editions include KDE, XFCE and Fluxbox
- Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu and develops accordingly
- Linux Mint is often called Ubuntu done right.
What I liked:
- Another newb-friendly version of Mint
- MintNanny, an app for basic parental control
- Flash Player integration much better
- Very fast load
What I didn't like:
- MintInstall-the new, revamped software manager takes forever and a day to load the list of apps
- The fact that Mint will be going back to basing directly off of Ubuntu rather than continue a separate development entirely
- Wireless detection was a nightmare, unstable, crashing, not detecting networks..ugh!
Of course, I am Mint-biased but I like this version of Mint. I am not as jazzed about it as I was about Elyssa but that's okay, there are still plenty of new minty things to explore and as usual it's newbie uber-friendly and my favorite and most recommended method of recruiting people to Linux. I give Felicia an A- for appearance (elegant) and a B+ for performance. There were a couple of issues that were deal-breakers for me, lack of stable wireless support was the big one.
