    os x and the bsd platforms are very similiar. in fact, several of the bsd developers also work developing for os x.

    Been running Mint 9 for the last week ish and so far it runs really well. Didn't run into any problems really...aside maybe w/ running HD videos where it just laggs like crazy. Haven't even looked into it yet though, will do so tomorrow. Definitively a nice distro and I would recommend it over Ubuntu 10.04.
