Hi All,

Linux Mint may have made things too easy and, in doing so, it may have killed the great Linux pastime of distro hopping. For those who aren't familiar with it, it's what desktop Linux users do as they seek their ultimate distro. They spring from one to another to another, never quite satisfied with any they land on. ... It's a sad thing to watch as dedicated Linux geeks abandon distro hopping in favor of sedately using the same distribution on an ongoing basis. How boring! How tedious! In a way, it's almost like using Windows! They just sit there like oblivious cows, content to chew their cud and gaze mindlessly across the field as the time passes.

This above comment / criticism about Linux Mint and its users - is just too good...

I stopped Distro Hopping... But I still do Distro Collection...

Now I am stuck with Debian over the past 4 years or so... Don't feel like using any other Distro... :)

Do comment there in that link...


Take care,
Ananth Gouri
