Any reason to keep mini with 3.2 DVD installed?

Other than footprint, is there any advantage or benefit to the mini over the DVD? I mean is there anything that made it into the mini that didn't make it into the DVD?

Congratulations on a superb distro! Looks and runs great.

Thanks and have a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2007.

All depends on what you want with your system.

Do you want a lean system and install what you want or do you want a system with tons of stuff??

3.2 mini has some bug fixes over the DVD but you can always update the DVD too. I run the DVD on one computer and the mini on other computers. It's all about what u want.

You can now boot from a USB using the Mini edition.
I wrote a tutorial on it. Waiting for it to be approved.

Yeah, but I perfer DVD edition because of the amount of software and features, like nvidia-settings.
Also, there's a bug in the 3.2 mini-edition that won't able you to login as root at the login screen. Oh well.
