Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon and MATE Editions Released

mexsudo Re:Cheers for Mint (89 comments)

Good move. My wife had similar complaints. I went one step better and also installed LMDE on her laptop. after configuring it to look identical to her Mint I set it as her default boot OS. >>> she did not notice the change at all. after a couple weeks I asked how she liked. she thought a bit and replied "I did notice that there were no updates needed, but I thought maybe you were doing that for me." LMDE = Stable. next spring LMDE2 will be even more stable.

Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon and MATE Editions Released

mexsudo Re: Cheers for Mint (89 comments)

99% of the real people only use 6 or 8 applications... or even less. if shortcuts to those apps are in the toolbar, there is no need to drill down and find things.

Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon and MATE Editions Released

mexsudo Re:Cheers for Mint (89 comments)

Mate would have been a better choice, with the desktop clean of icons, and the shortcuts she needs in the toolbar. Who needs menus?

I suggest Linux Mint 13 Mate. easy to adapt to coming from XP, and being a Long Term Support version nearly maintenance free. my wife is a parallel, she adapted within a couple days.
