One thing that I ran into with Linux Mint 7.0…it’s sometimes hard to install packages. I wanted a good USENET newsreader, but had the devil of a time, finally I just used WINE to use a WINDOWS program called Grabit to read the newsgroups.
Unless specifically ported to Linux MINT.. the packages are hard to find, they don’t show up on your program launcher.. many other users of Linux Mint have this problem.
But.. I still like it..and wills stick with it.
