    "v10.0 was good, but v14 is a true OS contender"

    May 29, 2013

    Version: Linux Mint 10.0

    Pros

    MATE desktop interface is clean, classic and a refreshing world away from the "app" and "tiles" world most OSes including Windows and the latest Ubuntu Desktop versions are moving to. It includes just about every single piece of software needed for daily computing "out of the box". Very little needs to be added except for any specialty applications you may use.

    Cons

    Hey It's Linux and not Windows, so expect a little more DIY. It won't run Windows applications directly. Installing WINE provides an avenue for running certain applications, but it's hit or miss at best. However, installing Oracle VM VirtualBox will solve the compatibility conundrum for most. You can install and run a full version of Windows (or any other OS) in a virtual machine that adeptly handles its task.

    Summary

    Linux Mint has what it takes to become a serious OS contender. While the standard Ubuntu distributions continue to stray toward the more popular trends of the day, Mint keeps it fresh by adding new features but still keeping maximum usability. If I were a major OS software company, I'd keep an eye on this little bugger. Those of us who are becoming tired of what the big guys offering up these days might just decide a refreshing Mint is just what is needed.

    "Crappy OS, so unstable and has lots of bugs."

    June 07, 2012   |   By Win2KFan

    Version: Linux Mint 10.0

    Pros

    Easier to use than other Linux distros?

    Cons

    3249823094809234 bugs
    Resource eater
    Crappy kernel
    Instability
    Kernel Panics all the time
    Incompatible with everything I have.
    ATI drivers are SOOO hard to install (except my old ATI Radeon 9550, which was easy to install)
    ...

    Summary

    It sucks.

    "Good to Learn an OS"

    November 29, 2011   |   By rgor

    Version: Linux Mint 10.0

    Pros

    Fast, no nonsense easy to use. A great way to learn Linux and become an expert. You can't go wrong and once you learn what you need, it will make you look like an expert.

    Cons

    1. ATI drivers were difficult to install
    2. Some websites are not compatible with linux versions of firefox
    3. Flash is an issue in terms of its behavior on chrome
    4. If you run into trouble, you are at the mercy of the community.

    Summary

    Great alternative OS, works great and free.
    Easy to Install
    You can learn w/o messing up windows
    Be prepared to learn and you will get better, if you want things to work and are not into computers then you should avoid linux based os especially if you have windows based applications for work such as Kareo.
