Linux Mint 8 LXDE is a great experience

I've been impressed with the Linux Mint distributions. Recently I tried the XFCE window manager version. But today tried the LXDE window manager version. It is fast and looks great. It also comes with some great programs like Firefox, Thunderbird, PC File Manager (similar to Gnome Nautilus), Brassero Disc burner, and XChat all standard. See screens below. This is a great light Ubuntu based distro. The Mint Community Team is to be commended for their excellent efforts. I will definitely be installing this distro on some PCs in my household of 9+ computers ! You can get it here to download: http://www.linuxmint.com/blog/?p=1325
