Linux Mint 13 dubbed - Maya {cinnamon} RC review and screenshots

Mint is my favourite distribution since I came across it{It was mint 8 then}.
Then I tried ubuntu 9.04,ubuntu 9.10,ubuntu 10.04 and I  satisfied more than fedora 8 and 9. Then I tried mint 9 and then there is  no coming back. I find Mint 9 very smooth. It has been past two years and I am still sticking with Mint 9 {have 32 and 64 installed side by side}. And I have no issue whatsoever with these 2 versions of mint. Due to several issues going in parallel like Gnome3,Gnome2,Unity I made my mind that I will switch to LTS either Ubuntu or Mint which suits me best. I tried Ubuntu 12.04  last week and find unity not so bad- you just  need some to time to get used to it..{same in the case for Gnome3}. Since then I was waiting for Mint 13 so called { Maya }. Then I see the mint blog about  Mint 13 RC release . Then I downloaded it without waiting anymore{I saw two versions and finally settle to download Mint 13 cinnamon version}. Below is the some keypoints....
Welcome screen ....more finished Icons....
uname -a details
Things to Note:::
1. Linux Kernel-
2. vlc ,banshee player
3. Yahoo by default in  search box in Firefox
4. Libre Office 
5. Gnome 2 like feel see below screenshots

Final words- Still have to try Mate version{Next review will be Mint 13 Maya Mate version}. This version is mate is although RC but It runs very fine through out review in my VMware and I adjusted its Resolution manually to 1360*768 and it worked fine...

For those who can't live without Gnome2 menu feel --Mint 13 Maya Cinnamon is for you.......

Don't afraid using Torrent - Use Torrent legally

Many of us don't know the real use of so called "Torrent". Torrent is actually a P2P{Peer to Peer} file sharing functionality. It has been wrongly used to download illegal stuffs{you know what I mean}from a long time. But its basic idea was to remove the dependency from a single point{so called server}. A single file can be downloaded from hundreds of people having the same file. The use of torrent have multiple benefits during a file download....

1. Heavily reduces the server traffic{load} to download the large files. simple example-
the site contain three options ....a. Torrent {Almost zero dependency on the site } b. direct download {server has to be always live to get the ISO downloaded....worst option from  a server point of view..} c. metalink {almost provides same functionality as torrent ...client remains the same like utorrent}...

2. Faster download speeds...{Usually every server has a download speed cut-off may ...Usually its under 2 MBPS...but with torrent there is no limit, you can download a file  with any speed ...depends how many seeders are there for the file...

3. Good Pause(Resume) support - Every torrent client has support to pause/resume the download at any time. Direct download sometimes fails to do that..

So the bottoms line is - Whenever you go for a large download , search for torrent option if present use definitely ...Usually all open source project provides torrent link on their official site...{This is what the real use of torrent}
Here is my kget and Transmission screenshots..
