Linux Mint 15 Reviewed and Praised

Downloaded and installed LinuxMint 15 and I must say that it is a very nice distro. The biggest showstopper I have is the lock down parts of the distro. I have used Synaptic for many a year and for some reason LinuxMint will cripple the application. To do responsible and personal updates and upgrades you have to use the command line. Mint's update manager lacks a lot to be desired. They cripple Synaptic in order to try to make you use their simple utilities. I decide what the proper updates are for my computers, not Mint. I believe this is more for the new user coming from MS Windows. Commenters who complain about bugs coming from the Ubuntu base and landing into LinuxMint and blaming the bugs on Ubuntu are a little off base in that assessment. The development team has no excuse not to repair bugs and to let them into the distribution. Yes, LinuxMint is a very good distro but still lacks some quality control work. If the Mint team can work on that then they will have deserved the imaginary number one spot on Distrowatch.
