I won't say another word on this thread which has gone past its useful 
life except that pointing out problems in software can be 
_exceedingly_ useful to present or interested _users_ of the software.

consider it a kind of 'review'. people with serious problems with 
sight now know to approach Mint with caution.

and all evaluation involves expressing emotions. the manner of 
expression is what matters.

anyway, have a good time whatever your time-zone.
