    When I listen to the Mintcast it is usually to get more info on Mint. There are lots of general linux podcasts which I do listen to. The more you guys can focus on Mint the better I like it. Often I feel I have to listen to a bunch of other stuff to get Mint information. Its your guys show so do as you please, but it seems with Mint’s growth there is definitely a need for a Mintcentric podcast.

    Just a thought about the processors – not all Core-i7s have integrated graphics, mine doesn’t (I’ve got an i7-740m) so it works fine for me!

    I agree with Henry that there’s not much Mint related information in the mintCast but it’s still interesting, to some extent. I wish there was more hardware info like that at the beginning, what works, what are the issues, where it’s going, etc., (my ALPS touchpad is still not working). Then with new technology, like Unity, will Mint follow it, etc., is more important than what it looks like or does, which we’ve already read about.
