Back from one doctor’s appointment, hanging out before having to go the the next one … time to blog. About Linux, of course. Dunno what’s going on in SL, no sensational news from that direction, so I’m quite sure you will excuse my indulgence. No? Hey, I didn’t force ya to read this shitty blog, did I?
Okay, with that cleared up, now let’s see what Gardener – the Linux Gamer – has to say about the artificial excitement in the Linux community about Mint and if it needs to die or wot?
Almost more interesting than the video content is, as so often, the comment section, which is quite positive about Linux MInt and wants it to stay, even if the commenters don’t use it themselves … anymore.
I used Mint in the past and I had a really good experience with it.
keep Linux mint but maybe there are some others that should quietly shutdown.
Mint is accessible when coming from Windows. The UI is more similar and indeed a lot of beginners start out with Mint. Cinnamon is a friendly environment.
I like Linux Mint… For a newbie it is just easy and simple and it was my gateway to the Linux world 🙂 and I would recommend it to everyone who wants to start with Linux.
I’m fairly new to Linux. Mint cinnamon was the easy entry for me.…If I didn’t have mint as an easy jumping off point, I’d probably be still confused and using Windows.
Nothing wrong about linux mint. It’s an amzing linux beginner distro. I know quite a few not that computerphile people that are using it and it just works great.
Wait linux mint can’t go away it’s the first distro I ever used
I don’t want it to die. I have been using Mint as my main distro for years on my desktop and laptop. I use to always install ubuntu first and end up having a crashing buggy system and end up installing Mint again which would just work properly even though it was based off the same version of ubuntu I had installed before. So I have ended up just sticking with Mint and using their upgrade tool when new versions come out. I love their Distro and finally after all these years decided to start donating to them. If they were to go away I really don’t know what I would go to since I love Mint and their cinnamon desktop, no other distro has ever held my interest in the way Mint has.
When you just got out of the Matrix, you need rest, peace and hundreds of needles that restore your muscles. And this is Linux Mint!
Linux Mint + Cinnamon is best Windows like experience out there for new beginners imo.
I love mint+xfce
Linux Mint even though it’s not my distro of choice has a massive reason to exist.
Linux Mint to Die??? This is the only one Distro I do care for. If it’s gone, then No Linux at all.
Linux mint was THE distro that I started with so yeah it should exist although i use arch now
Linux Mint does have a purpose – to provide an operating system filled with pre-installed tools to get real work done, without tinkering the distro itself intensively. Some people say it is a ‘noob’ distro, but really – it is a distro for ANY type of user regardless of his/her expertise.
Linux mint has some of the best first-time user tools of any distro. I started my experiments in linux on mint.
Mint Linux Rocks!
As a new user I find Mint to be a good old fashioned desktop experience which doesn’t get in your way. It is not the shiniest though although that is fine too.
Mint is a great starter for people from windows.
I’ve used Mint before – it’s a nice distro.
Linux Mint was the first distro that just worked for me and let me feel the coolness that was open source with out needing a Comp Sci degree.
Linux Mint was my gateway drug
Linux Mint user here. Love it, donating every month to it. I tried multiple Linux distros and each time went back to Windows, it was Mint that made me stick with Linux, and I know for a fact I’m not alone either.
It is a safe space for noobs! #loveLinuxMint
