Linux Mint 3.1 is not especially refreshing

A major point of LinuxMint is to use the precompiled 32 bit binaries, A 64 bit Linuxmint would make little sense to exist. Why do you need 64 bits? You only have 2 gigs of ram, 32 bits is what you need, a 64 bit install is more likely to slow down your machine.

Also complaining that all the packages are not up to date when a new version is getting ready to come out, seem rather pointless and dumb. The point is that LinuxMint comes out with more than 2 version a year in order to keep it up to date. Are you looking for a system the redoes their release every single time a new version of a package hits the street? That makes no sense at all. Gee I guess I should have submitted a Fedora 7 review last week.
