So I just installed Linux Mint 13 last night on my primary desktop. This is the Mate 64b version. Last week I installed the 32b Cinnamon version on my laptop, and after a couple days, installed Mate and started using that instead. Cinnamon's a valiant effort and to be applauded, but has some significant usability problems.
As long as I'm detailing what I got rid of in Linux Mint 13, here's the initial additions I make and a complete list of what I remove. Additions first:
- ccrypt emacs tcsh
- ispell rhythmbox mirage
- openjdk-7-jdk openjdk-7-source openjdk-7-doc
- haskell-platform ghc-mod
- texlive-latex-base texlive-latex-base-doc texlive-latex-extra
Now the removals:
BTW, above I used thunderbird as an example of something to be removed. I like thunderbird--it's a good tool. But now I do all my e-mail through web-based interfaces, which is concerning in some respects, but until I decide to break this bad habit, I' do not need a mail client.
