Linux Mint Distros
I've been using Linux distros for a few years now; & the best & easiest distro to use yet is Linux Mint 8 without a shadow of doubt. However versions 9 & 10 really suck for an average user. Version 8 comes with Java & Adobe flash preinstalled & right out of the box Linux Mint 8 works @ all of the websites the average user will use. What's the problem with later distros that Linux can't preinstall both of them in the newer ones?
