Linux Mint 3.1 is not especially refreshing

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 69.158.6.210] on November 10, 2007 04:11 AM
I'm currently running the Gnome version of Cassandra 3.0 at a senior citizens centre...and I don't like Gnome all that much, I'm more of a KDE fan. But, at the time the Gnome version of 3.0 was out...and the KDE and XFCE versions came out a little later. But, I found that Linux Mint's implementation of Gnome was sort of "Gnome for folks who don't like Gnome"...I thought it was excellent. I've since installed the XFCE version of Linux Mint on a somewhat older box at home and found it works quite nicely. KDE fan that I am, I still haven't gotten around to testing a KDE version of Linux Mint.

I also agree that it was silly to post this review at this time with the Gnome, KDE and XFCE versions of Linux Mint 4.0 just about ready to released. It's pretty obvious what happened...Linux Mint develops on Gnome first...and then KDE and XFCE. And...for Celena 3.1, they simply skipped doing KDE and XFCE releases. Big deal! Linux Mint "releases early and releases often".
