Linux Mint 10 is here! I installed the DVD version onto my 16GB Flash drive using the updates Universal USB installer 188.8.131.52. I had to increase the primary partition to 1024MB (1GB) to accommodate the full DVD install. I also created a new casper-rw partition on the remain space, plus modified the Shutdown Policy from USB. I installed Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.4 and chntpw (both of which can be installed from Software Manager), and I still need to install a few other apps like Google Chrome and Filezilla.
I forgot to copy the DVD ISO to my drive last night so I am downloading while writing this post. I plan on updating my production PC this week so I can run Windows 7 in a VM to provide support to my customers. I don’t expect any problems with installing the new OS. Just remember, always backup your data before installing a new OS.
