I know Mint is built upon Ubuntu. So, if you take Ubuntu 13.04 and add Cinnamon, is that the same as Linux Mint or is there more to Mint then just Cinnamon?
Ubuntu vs Linux Mint
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 3, 2009
I've been hearing a lot of good things about Linux Mint lately, and was wondering what you guys think about it. Do you think it's good enough to warrant uninstalling Ubuntu in favour of it, or Ubuntu will be just fine for the time being? If you wouldn't mine, could you give me a short comparative analysis? Like the differences between installations, and does Mint use the same package manager, terminal, compiz, things like that, as Ubuntu?
Also, this is slightly off topic, but if I were to format my Ubuntu partition, would Grub go with it?

Windows vs Linux

Just received a Micro Center flyer in the mail. I carefully looked for computers that had other than Windows or Mac OSes preinstalled. It was pretty pathetic since I found only 1 and that was a Chrome Book.
Windows 8 isn't popular, but M$ has a marketing genius (or a real heavy hand ) since HP & Dell (2 prominent manufactures in the flyer) sell their system with Ubuntu Linux installed.

If Red Hat, Fedora, SuSE, Slackware, Debian, Ubuntu and Linux Mint were all drunk at a bar and had a fight, who would win?
Any difference between Ubuntu Minimal install vs. Arch Linux install?

Hello. I'm fairly new to the Linux world. I'm looking into building a lightweight system with either dwm or Openbox as my WM. I've tried using Arch to build a system, but I'm wondering if there are any differences using Ubuntu's minimal install cd and building an Openbox system.
Arch Linux "vanilla" or LXDE?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 4, 2012
I have done a fresh installation of Arch Linux, this week. I am very happy with my progress, so far. The way I have it now, I boot to a text console, log in, and run startx to go into an OpenBox desktop with a tint2 panel. This is very nice, very simple, and very light on resources.
However, every time I want to do something new, it seems like I have to install something else and learn how to configure it. Yesterday, I discovered that LXDE is basically just OpenBox plus several more applications. The claim is that LXDE is also very light on resource consumption.
So, what is your take on this? Should I continue on my current tack, or add LXDE to maybe make things a little simpler? I want to hear the pros and cons of both approaches.
Is Arch Linux for you?

I just finally installed Arch Linux... After a year of decisions, I finally did it! After installing it on VM, where all looks gorgeous, a few times, I decided it! I removed Fedora, which I installed this week-end (poor Fedora), and I took 4 hours installing, configuring, doing other stuff and doing homework with it.
It's very nice to see that you can install a system without a graphical interface, and install a DE later (such as XFCE, as I did). But... according to the KISS definition, Arch has nothing. I thought it wasn't a problem, as you can just do pacman -S packagename and install something, like pacman -S firefox. But... Not only happened with applications, of course. I stayed... 2 hours of those 4 to configure the WiFi network and doing odd scripts for systemd, and discovering that neither NetworkManager nor Wicd worked, I saw another problem... The sound, how the hell I configure the sound. And the printer. And the multimedia keys. And all!
It's not a problem if you have
