Linux Mint represented my return to Linux. It was the first distribution I tried that "just worked", and since that day I have not had Windows installed on any of my personal PCs. I have, however, jumped between a few different Linux distributions, and have recently settled on Fedora 15.
I found myself installing Linux Mint once again while resurrecting some old Dell laptops. As it turns out, Fedora 15 has issues installing on PCs with 512MB or RAM or less. So I jumped on the Linux Mint website and saw that they had just make a release candidate of their LXDE 11 distribution available.
