    Just installed it. Sleek and fast. And they've made fluxbox look pretty nice in the process. Check it out. To me, Mint has Ubuntu beat.

    I did a clean install of Mint 9 a few weeks back and had nothing but problems because of some code source changes used in 9. Fought it for a week and decided to go back to Mint 8. Haven't had any issues since reverting. I'm a bit surprised they released 9 with the compatibility issues with older programs, How Microsoft of them. Maybe I'll give it a try later, if not I'll wait for 10 to come out.

    Fluxbox is a window manager. Much lighter and faster than KDE, or even Gnome (which usually runs faster for me than KDE).

    Better than Ubuntu huh? I'm on Lucid Lynx right now and loving it. No problems since the install.

    Debian for Server, Pardus Linux for home Computer.
    Member Steerpike is right, Gnome is more responsive then KDE.
    I left KDE at 3.5 version, which still is faster then the 4 version. KDE is bloated with many things you don't need.

    Window managers etc. I do not really care anymore. On Server I've no window manager installed, even not X window. From my work with server the console habbits transfered to home computer. Now, I make most things through console and mc (midnight commander).
    P.S: Best native Editor is Geany. Console editors like nano or vi are a pain.
