Some of these cross into the above, hacked programs but most of those don't carry the specific postfix *-git on them.

To be fair, I've found a surprisingly high number of apps I use regularly were only available in AUR. But on the whole I do agree with you

Same here. With wrappers like packer though, it's really no trouble installing packages from either repository.

How do you know it has 4.10? I have a hard time figuring out version numbers for packages, or at least linking them to their official version numbers.

Do these two webpages not say that this version (Sid) is newer than this version (experimental)?! How do you figure out the exact release they're referring to? All I can see is the version of some of the various apps (which appears to be mostly 4.8 and 4.4 on the sid page and 4.4 on the experimental, unless I'm reading things wrong).

4.10 of xfce or kde? I think both. try aptitude show. and add -t experimental to it
Code:
aptitude -t experimental show xfce4 kde-plamsa-desktop

*could be wrong on the name of that kde package*

The desktop on my laptop, running Mint 13 MATE. The desktop isn't very cluttered yet as I've only been running this particular distro for about a week.



I could probably do with a new wallpaper too wink.gif Maybe the blue Lights one that is on my desktop.

Linux Mint 14 Xfce, Crunchy-Green and BeSimple Leftish themes. I used to use Fedora, but then Steam train arrived, so I hopped back on a debian based distro for it.
