Linux Mint 15 Olivia KDE - The eyes smile doth not

Filed under
Linux

Well, time to review Linux Mint 15 Olivia KDE. Normally, I do not review Mint releases adorned with the KDE desktop, not because there's something wrong with them, but simply because it has never been Mint's forte.

On the other hand, Mint has always shown pretty good results with Cinnamon and MATE, and this is where most of the focus and love really are. Anyhow, let us commence. I will be testing the distro on my T61 machine, which comes with 2GB RAM, two SSD, and a cheap graphics card. And for those weird people who read my reviews and think I'm doing them in a virtual machine, no, I am not. Physical and all.

Proceed, please.
