    Am I the only one that really likes this OS? It's been in my VM for a week and really can't stop using it. I use it i'd say 95 % of the time now.

    It's a solid OS, especially the applications they picked are quite nice and it works out of the box. What I don't like about Mint are bugs, every now and then something freezes or slows down. I also don't like the way you can't change the theme and font of the icons in the bottom right. They are too gray for my taste and have lack of proper contrast.
    Besides that, it's probably one of the best OSes for the new users. Really solid. But personally I prefer 100% stability, that's why I moved to Debian stable, however this little sucker requires a lot more skill to configure.

    Looking forward for Mint 17 based on Unbuntu 14.04LTS.
    I'm very pleased so far with Xubuntu 14.04LTS though.
