Linux Mint 15 – Olivia

Linux Mint 15Well,that was an interesting install,probably because I want to dual boot Mint 15 and Windows 7 .The boot up screen looks like a dog’s breakfast so I am glad I am me and know which option to pick. I’ll have to see if I can sort that out and by now developers ought to be able to bring me a half decent boot up screen like Mandrake did. In fact, Mandrake does well in that area. It is just that it wants to take over the computer! With Ubuntu and Mint there can be a list of options which is white text on a black background and it could be very intimidating for some. The laptop wasn’t going to let me boot up from the Linux disk. It kept trying to eject it so I actually held the tray shut until it read the files. Then we had the weirdo coding rubbish which I ignored and finally it loaded the live disk and I could install from there. Very quick. Fastest Linux install I have ever had – about 10 minutes. At the end it said the installation had crashed  and gave me more code. I ignored all of that and it was perfectly fine on reboot. themesThe first thing I did was get myself a desktop background and then in the option for changing desktop wallpapers you can download nearly 200 themes if you want to . I have picked a half a dozen. That is a great improvement in theme  download functionality. It makes it very easy. Linux Mint 15 is called Olivia. It has made better use of my Toshiba laptop graphics. The images are crystal clear compared with  Windows 7. It runs really fast and smoothly and has come with everything I need to get going from the moment I have installed it. So, that means in 15 minutes you are up and running with a highly functional and efficient OS. That’s pretty impressive. I am not sure why there was all the installation hoo-ha because that is something I haven’t previously encountered with Linux Mint installations. The interface is really cruisy and is a pleasure to work with because it is all instant. Look forward to finding out more as I use it.
