Re: Centos & Mint
"Mint with Mate desktop is far closer to what a user workstation / netbook / laptop /desktop should be, but it and Ubuntu are basically Debian, Unbuntu with more stupid bits."
- By 'stupid bits', you mean Unity?
- Well pardon them for trying to ensure 'linux as a user OS remains relevant into the mobile age in their own way. The Gnome ui has some potential as a tablet interface ans KDE also have plans, but that doesn't mean Canonical can't also have their own vision.
It's not as if you can't install a more traditional desktop ui also (from kde to mate or even xmonad).
