I had the chance to try Linux Mint 9 on my virtualbox yesterday after almost more than an hour of downloading (since I need to limit my download transfer to prioritize some of my movie downloads =) Anyway, after installing, I just felt that I’m just using a combination of Ubuntu and Opensuse. I like the ease of installation and it’s network backup tool, other than that,I find it very Ubuntuish , but still worth a try.
