Thanks Dinesh. I figured that I'd have to wait until the Mint crew get hold of Ubuntu 10.10 and add there bits etc. I'm wondering whether I will be able to upgrade this install or need to do a fresh one.

Yep, its based on Ubuntu and it is more user-friendly as all the necessary codes like flash, mp3 players, etc. are already included. Its good for those who want to try Linux for the 1st time and are using Windows as their main OS.

I have Mint 9 on a vhd in the Oracle Virtual Box at the moment. I'll be seeing both 32bit and 64bit releases of the 10.10 shortly when both of those finish downloading.

Puppy 5.0 will be going on a 32gb flash drive to make up a new data recovery stick which is also a Debian based distro but a bit smaller size wise.

Anyone else looking forward to the new changes? I wish they'd put some focus on ATI as well as Nvidia drivers, but then again, aren't ATI drivers more open anyways?
