For Windows users and formerly ex-Windows users (similar to myself), I feel Linux Mint KDE is a GREAT choice to get into a stable, easy to use OS. I've used many, many different Linux distros with countless WM/DE configurations, and Mint KDE is my favorite so far. Mint picked up where Ubuntu left off to make Mint even easier to use, understand, and customize than Ubuntu. Plus, in the battle of the two heavyweight DE's, KDE kicks GNOME's butt any day of the week.

Bottom line: Mint KDE is a winner because it is sophisticated enough for Linux vets and easy enough for noobs. * * * * *

Having fed-up with Ubuntu main distro, I've decided to give a chance to LinuxMint.

It was worth the while.

Looks? Better.
Multimedia support? Better.
Newer software editions? Indeed.

For a desktop distro, this is indeed an excellent choice.
