    Already backed up my UbuntuLinux machine...seriously considering switching it to LinuxMint

    may I ask why. I thought Mint was a small foot print version with limited capabilities.

    Really? It's not. You can get the fully loaded Mint "Julia" and it comes with everything in a very nice package.

    maybe I am thinking of an earlier version or something else.. I get the distros mixed up sometimes

    I'm running Mint on dual boot Mac and Windows XP machines without issue and very pleased. Although I like minimalist GUIs, Mint provides...

    Well, that happens easily enough! Not like PuppyLinux!! or DSL! Which one do you use?
  • coke! says
    I am only using Linux on servers, so mostly SuSe and Fedora.

    messed around with a number including Ubuntu, Debian, Puppy etc

    mguhlin: are you using VirtualBox to run them on the Mac or just boot camp single boot?
  • coke! says
    I have been using VirtualBox running Windows 7 on my Mac since quite a bit of what I am doing requires windows OS
  • mguhlin
    I'm running bootcamp on Mac to dual boot...use Refit to achieve dual boot menu. Works great. I run Virtual Box on my Mac to get Windows.
