Linux Mint 9: Fast, Stable, and Beautiful

,----[ Quote ]
| It’s been a long time since I last looked at 
| Mint, and a lot has changed since. After 
| Ubuntu 10.04 LTS was released, I thought I 
| would take a look at Linux Mint 9 “Isadora” 
| to see what they are doing with the latest 
| Ubuntu base, which was already wonderful as 
| it is. After playing with the latest Mint for 
| just a short period of time, I’ve already 
| fallen in love with it.

| Overall: 5/5 (Great!)

| A new version of the Software Manager is

| The Software Manager was rewritten from
| scratch in Linux Mint 9. It’s a very complex
| application, and it can be improved in many
| ways. Today we tackled the time it takes for
| the application to start. Basically it needs
| to process some 30,000 packages, a growing
| number of comments (we’re receiving about 200
| comments per day at the moment) and match all
| that in categories and do some other fancy
| processing… Because of all this, it’s far from
| being immediate.

I'm running Mint 9 in a VM right now. One thing I discovered is that the 
XPN newsreader dies as soon as you attempt to open or edit the score 
file. It runs fine under Mint 8.

Invoke it from the commandline and see how it dies.
