Re: First impressions 3.5 Levi

I'm not usually into old school Xfce, Gnome 2, distros, I know Mate is a fork of Gnome 2, but the Mint team are doing a great job with it. You seem to have got the balance about right it boots fairly fast, has a nice theme most of the software defaults are useful. You have obviously put a lot of tho...
