I'm mining for a few days just to see... I have to say the wallet doesn't inspire too much confidence... Nova clone with nothing really added. Not like it's a huge investment however so I'll mine at least a few thousand just for grins. At least MINT showed a little more polish on the wallet, but there's still time for the BC guys to add value to the wallet and infrastructure. Plus there's contests depending on pool (Scryptominers.com is running a donator raffle starting tomorrow). If it's not fun - why bother.
The reality is that almost none of these coins are likely to survive their first year of life... but the gamble is in having at least some of the one or two that actually do - as they should be worth plenty to make up for the others.
I am definitely a sucker for PoS coins (Proof of Stake - not the other PoS).
As I prefer holding smaller amounts of a variety for a longer run - PoS coins have that built in incentive. If nothing else I think that's the only reason I still have any PPC... not like I expect the adoption to widen on that one really.
