The first RC of Mint * has arrived and It is very nice. A few tweaks and here is a screen shot. I downloaded Gnome Do with a few docklets and set it to Docky mode and replaced Rhythmbox with Banshee. This is such a nice operating system with very nice software choices. Open Source community is truly amazing. Webcam, wireless, printers/scanners all worked out of the box. Even the soft keys for volume and wireless and touchpad lock all work. Very Groovy

A friend of mine asked me to fix her Asus eeePC 900. It had a 4gig and 8gig SSD drive and with XP installed it was giving her disk full with nothing on it. So a quick download of the ISO and Unetbootin I created a bootable USB drive. A quick reboot to the USB stick and 12 minutes later I was looking at a very good looking and functional desktop. A few more minutes to update the install and to add codecs for the usual proprietary file formats and everything was working. Wireless Webcam everything. Nice job Ubuntu!
