I've been a fairly faithful Ubuntu user for a number of years now. I've tried Mint in the past, but even though I've liked it, it hasn't been enough to pull me away from Ubuntu. Lisa might be what I've been waiting for.

At first glance, I didn't see a way to install Mint with full disk encryption (eg. LVM on top of LUKS). That's going to limit Mint's appeal in corporate environments (like mine) where IT policies dictate that all machines use disk encryption to thwart information loss due to physical theft of the machine.

On the other hand...
Linux Mint, which is funded by a community of users is not likely to come up with the resources to needed in the new cloud based mobile integrated future. It really is game over for consumer desktop Linux.

As a person who used Ubuntu on my primary computer for 18 months, I can tell you it works fast, clean, and virus-free. Shame that so few care.
