Finally I found Felicia….

My search for the best Linux Disto has come to an end after a year. Yes it took me almost a year to decide and select the perfect OS for my Laptop. Finally I satisfied with the Mint. The version I installed in my laptop is ‘Linux Mint 6’. I have chosen Mint mainly because it includes media codecs. Along with the media codecs, it also supports browser plugins, DVD playback, Java and other components.

Being originated from Ireland, Linux Mint is an Ubuntu-based distribution whose goal is to provide a more complete out-of-the-box experience. I use Ubuntu 8.04 as an official distro but it does not provide the audio codecs, which supports my laptops hardware configuration. Finally I ended up with the ‘Felicia’ (Codename of Linux Mint 6), which has the necessary drivers for my Laptop.
