OK Mint you win! I am impressed.

Linux

Decided since it was a typically sunny English summer day (blowing a gale and pissing it down) that it might be a good time to try installing Mint onto the laptop I use for work (previously had a 10.04LTS install which has behaved well).

Background: I've used Linux since the 90's, run Linux as my primary operating system at home and work and run a bunch of servers all running Linux as well, I'm not a Unix god but I can get around.

* Installation, As expected smooth (as it should be, even Debian have a slick graphical installer at this point), detected time zone correctly as London (even the Ubuntu installer falls down on that one) and was installing while it waited for input, very nice.

* Initial Boot, Damn! that is pretty.
