Linux Mint 5 Released

Looks like I will be rebuilding a couple boxes…

Late yesterday, the latest release of my favorite Linux distro was made public. As much as I’ve liked having Ubuntu’s 8.04 release on my laptop, I’ll be ditching it within the next few days to give Linux Mint 5 a hard look. Mint has been my distro of choice for better than a year now, and based on that history, what I’ve read about the changes, and my positive experience with Ubuntu 8.04 (upon which this release of Mint is based), I don’t believe I will be disappointed.

I will follow up with more on this after the first of my re-builds.
