Re: Mint 15

Checked it out, couple of minor issues so far.
In the software centre, select something and click on the screenshot, there is no way back from it. From the new drivers installer, it doesn't tell you to reboot to complete the install.
I have it installed in a test partition to check it out, currently back in M14.

Re: Mint 15

On reflection it might be better to hang on for a couple of more days before downloading as there will be a fair bit of feedback from users over the next week or so regarding bugs.

Re: Mint 15

There won't be much feedback if everyone waits for someone else to try it first.  Tongue

Re: Mint 15

It hasn't been officially released yet, the release notes etc all get 404 errors.

Fair comment but it might make more sense for users more experienced in Linux to give it a try first and report problems as those with little knowledge of Linux may not know how to recover from an error/errors.

Re: Mint 15

Your probably better off waiting for the released version rather than the RC, this is going to have bugs.
Apart from a faster boot up I didn't actually notice any difference yesterday.

RC officially launched today.  Wink
I am having keyboard issues on mine, I can login but after a few seconds the k/b stops responding. Switching to a virt term it works fine, so not a k/b physical issue, just can't type anything into any boxes/terminals etc.

Re: Mint 15

I believe it has/had to do with installing compiz. Removed that and all seems fine again.

Funny you should say that  Cheesy I AM! (A M$ natural Internet usb K/b !)
The only real thing stopping me at the moment is that caja-terminal doesn't work in caja 1.61. Its something I use a lot, so would really miss it. (Before everybody tells me that caja-open-terminal is there, that opens a terminal in the current folder, c-t opens a small captive window at the top of the caja window, handy to issue quick commands.

Re: Mint 15

Good review at zdnet
As the years roll-by, every new update of Linux Mint impresses me more. Other desktop operating systems, such as Microsoft's Windows 8 may abandon the tried-and-true windows, icons, menus, and pointer (WIMP) desktop metaphor. Others, such as Ubuntu with Unity try to keep some of the WIMP interface while expanding it for tablets and smartphones, but the Ubuntu-based Mint, with Cinnamon and MATE, has stayed true to the WIMP interface. As far as I'm concerned the latest version, Linux Mint 15, Olivia, is now not merely the best Linux desktop, it's the best desktop operating system of all.
