Hi red32, Clem is still in charge of Mint, Boo still making Mint KDE, I did not get to test latest round of KDE ISO's my test machine went down during the first round so not sure what happend with KDE 10. When i was testing Mint KDE10 its base foe KDE was 4.5, but they switched to KDE 4.6 and that may have something to do with your issues. I have not run Mint KDE 10 running on KDE 4.6 yet so I am not familure with what issues it may have. I am glad you like the wall though. Thank you.
I think Mint can learn a few things from Pardus 2011, I'd love to see Mint adopt that OS as a base. Pardus is independent and I bet Mint could improve on it a great deal, all the while making Mint better.
