    I would skip Mint. The latest editions are not really ready for prime time. Try out Xubuntu. It uses the XFCE interface. You can still run gnome & kde apps in it. But it runs a lot better than straight Ubuntu. Even better than Mint.

    Yeah im still new to the whole Linux thing. So if im correct I should be able to do the things Ubuntu could do on the differet DE so I could do the same things on Xubuntu or Kubuntu as I would on regular Ubuntu. Probably sounds dumb but im still picking the whole linux thing up. Anyway I do have an Xubuntu machine on Virtual Box. I do like the DE especially the lack of the Unity theme even though I removed the Unity task bar in favor of an GNOME Flashback theme in Ubuntu.

    I think your the first person I have come accross who has said to skip out on Mint. A lot of people regard it as the best Distro going at the moment and would say to use it over Ubuntu these days.
