First time accepted submitter Type44Q writes "Well, the latest edition of Mint is finally here (the release candidate, anyway); according to The Linux Mint Blog, 'For the first time since Linux Mint 11, the development team was able to capitalize on upstream technology which works and fits its goals. After 6 months of incremental development, Linux Mint 14 features an impressive list of improvements, increased stability and a refined desktop experience. We're very proud of MATE, Cinnamon, MDM and all the components used in this release, and we're very excited to show you how they all fit together in Linux Mint 14.'"

    Microsoft, Apple et al used shills and reputation managers to chase anyone interested in technology away.

    Now Slashdot is full of marketing drones trying to flog their latest product, and their only interest in Linux is ensuring nobody wants to try it.

    It should read "whoever started"

    "whoever" is performing the action (started), it is the subject of that clause.

    Don't try to use proper English if you don't know the rules.

    No, a jackass is one who thinks that it's cute and funny to introduce confusing reference designation schemes in a desperate plea to rebel against the institutionalist version number. Hey, look at me, I named my distro after a quirky animal ( Whoa, so hipster! ). Oh yeah? I named my distro Peter Puffer because that's my gay lover's name ( Aww, how sweet! ).

    Like in real life, there are right and wrong ways to get attention. The right way is to develop a distro that Just Works, with a robust set of applications, that people want to use. The wrong way is to reference furrism and bestiality, or the naming convention equivalent of tattooing your lover's name on your arm.

    Those who do the latter should be smacked in the mouth with a rolled-up newspaper, the proper way to put uppity animals in their place.

    p.s. - Debian Lenny. I knew a guy named Lenny once, he robbed a house he was housesitting for a coin collection and a stack of playboys. He was later arrested for robbing a pizza boy at knifepoint. Before he grew into this horrible person, as a kid he would sing the Lion King song "in the jungle, MY mighty jungle..." altering the words, and it was at this point where he would whip out his penis and continue "...My lion sleeps tonight!"

    Likewise with Unity, it is pretty different from Windows. But it's very similar to the Mac, so maybe users familiar with the Mac can use it?

    As a long-time Mac fan, I must say it is pretty much unusable for us too.
