Comment: Very polished release (Score 1) 129

by bwat47 (#42055355) Attached to: Linux Mint 14 Is Out
I am really liking Mint 14/Cinnamon so far, which surprised me since I never particularly liked mint or cinnamon when I tried them in the past. Mint 13 with cinnamon just seemed kind of buggy and unpolished to me. Linux mint 14 just works perfectly for me, one of the best out of the box linux experiences I've ever had. They fixed a ton of issues in cinnamon 1.6 and added some useful features. Cinnamon has now become my preferred DE. I really like that cinnamon maintains a sane interface, while being built on the modern gnome-shell/mutter base; so its got solid and well integrated compositing and useful features like scale out of the box (and compiz has always been buggy for me, so I'm always glad when I can avoid it). Cinnamon maintains a good balance between customizability, features, eye candy, and polish.

There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence. -- Jeremy S. Anderson
