well yeah... it says it uses the testing repos... it doesnt say what other repos it uses, it doesnt say if it uses the debian squeeze kernel or a different one... the only information it gives is that it uses the testing repos :/ i knew that already, but i wouldnt have gone and asked some mint users questions if i was able to find the information on the mint site

But u grouped Ubuntu users in ur rant about mint? U are asking questions about a specific release of mint that's not standard and more or less beta, from a set of users who probably use mint cause Ubuntu was too hard.

Have u learned all u can about mint itself? The same philosophy they use for the Ubuntu version they carry over to lmde. Since u knew hhow much ram the menu used do u have one of the mints installed?

no, says on the xfce version of the LMDE on the site that it uses 30mb of ram lol...

and i grouped ubuntu users together because the same stuff happens with ubuntu users... you could probably post "sudo rm -rf --no-preserve-root /" on the ubuntu forums, say it ran your windows games, and people would copy and paste it in mass... it annoys me when there is a fairly large group of people, and not a single one could even understand my questions...

well considering your attitude towards ubuntu users in the past, and knowing the ubuntu quite well (as i am a ubuntu user, and interact with the ubuntu community a lot), yeah it is filled with noobs, but its nothing like the debian community you seem to hold in such high regard.

the debian community at one time was regarded as one of the most unwelcoming communities of all time for new users. they were at one time, even very sexist (actually that might be one thing they have yet to overcome, been a long time since i even felt the need to visit it)...that community has taken a lot of flack over the years, and it is no wonder why so many deviations of it exist, cause those dev's probably grew tired of the BS that arose inside the debian community and decided to fork it, instead of giving up what is a really great OS.

i myself have picked up on your condescending tone in your questions and comments on this forum, so i'm not a 100% convinced that the mint community is at total fault here. looking at their "faq" again, and knowing how debian works their stable, unstable, testing releases/repo's, i stand by my previous statement that the mint faq answers all your questions, for some one who claims to use and know debian, you don't seem to know a whole lot about its creation.

with a bit of research, the mintMenu is a fork of Slab (which i believe is the standard menu of gnome?), also looking at some of the release notes and some of the code in its source, it does seem to be "caching" the installed programs list (don't think it is /usr/bin, looks to be /usr/share/applications, will have to dive more into its code to know for sure.), for the search function. seems to work similarily to the kde search function.

in all reality, why don't you move onto arch, they seem to be the new distro for all the "leets" to flock to, with an uncanny match for ego and elitism, you should fit in well there, especially if you want to look down upon all the users of what is deemed to be "noob" distros...

I wouldn't even have bothered asking such questions in an IRC channel. It's too easy to just fire the thing up in a virtual machine and see for myself.

that requires downloading an iso, and setting up VM software which i dont really wanna waste time doing on my home computer...

and no transhour, i didnt say ALL ubuntu users are that way, but like 90% easy... lol and the only thing it says on mint's site about the LMDE is that it uses the debian testing repo, thats all it says... i know how debian does its releases and repositories... the site doesnt even exactly say it uses the debian testing repo, it says its "based" on the debian testing repo, so it could take the packages and remix the whole thing into mint's own frankenstein repo...

and no i dont hold the debian community in high regard i know they are very arrogant... but communities that dont even know what i am asking when i ask simple questions are by far more useless

This is part of the reason why I use arch. I almost never post on the forum but 99% of the time I kind find the answer by searching there or the wiki.

In a way it makes it easier than Ubuntu when you start to do anything that's outside the norm.

Dude, how hard is it to d/l an Iso and Install VMPLayer? (it's free and it sets itself up.)

I have done Squeeze, Ubuntu, Fedora and whatnot (some more which my memory fails me).. Downloaded them all in under 3 hours. With a basic cable connection.

It's not hard to do. Instead of bashing the community, try getting the answers yourself.

Also is this on freenode? I got all my answers and more answered in #ubuntu and ##linux (you need to reg with freenode to talk in ##linux)
