Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I’ve reviewed the latest ‘consumer’ version of Ubuntu, namely 12.04, and found that it was pretty far away from being perfectly consumer friendly. Then one of our readers suggested I review Mint 13 Cinnamon.
I installed this version via USB as well as it is the easiest way to run and test Linux, sometimes it may be slow especially when installing certain apps, but it runs smoothly. After the initial boot up which was way more pleasing to the eye than the Ubuntu one (no DOS like the reviewer from eTV said). It took longer to boot than Ubuntu, but it’s hardly noticeable.
