Test Driving Linux Mint Cassandra

| All in all, the system looks very good, I like the new artwork, it's
| fast, it includes almost everything you'll ever need for your daily
| tasks and if you cannot find something you need, I suggest you to try
| the new Software Portal that Linux Mint created for FREE. I'm not a
| GNOME fan and all that, but Linux Mint makes this aspect disappear
| very fast and who knows, I may start to like the GNOME desktop after
| all. Give Linux Mint Cassandra a try and I bet it will be love at
| first sight.

Bullshit. Mint Linux (Bianca) is a nightmare.
There is nothing that resembles order or logic
in the manner it is categorized. Everything is
plastered on the desktop with the only thing that's
recognizable is the bottom center category
"System something-or-other" The other desktop
hogging categories seem to be helter-skelter in
their placement. Nothing is in it's proper place.
Anyone cutting their teeth on this distro will be
totally screwed up when they finally move to a
sensible distro that's layed out correctly.

On top of that, it continues to have the same
failing as 95% of the Linux distros ie: the display
defaults to and is restricted to 1024x768 even when
a higher res is more optimal. In order to obtain
1280x1032 or higher the user must install X which
is something that should be installed even above KDE.

Mint Linux, Hogwash.
