Default Linux Mint, The Ubuntu That Should Have Been?

Before continuing Iím going to say up front I purposely avoided using Mint because I was under the impression it was just an "Ubuntu with some nice stuff added to it". And thereís a few distros out there like that. Not so with Mint as I found out.

Wow, anyone that wished Linux worked out of the box without command line or manual file editing... this looks like the distro. Check out the Part 2 of this article here: http://www.pcmech.com/article/linux-...e-been-part-2/

I am particularly curious if he actually got playable FPS let alone a woking HL2 and other games, since he has DirectX support via Wine-Doors.
