Yup! LM is the 4th most popular Linux Distro of all time (or so it has been reported to be true)
or simple wait for linux mint's new version to come out, and use that.
Ubuntu 10.10 killed my interest in Linux, until that error of a distro I was happily learning linux
That's the part of learning. Remove it and install 10.04
I support this I really enjoy using Mint
GNU/Linux is about choices. If you don't like Ubuntu try Linux Mint, if you don't like Linux Mint try OpenSuse, if you don't like OpenSuse try Arch Linux ...
I don't think it's dead. It will get a great boost as soon as devices are sold with chrome os!
