Had the opportunity to have a ride this afternoon around north Leeds.
I am still fixing the final little issues after my switch from Fedora to Mint and this morning came across a problem with i3status and its battery reporting. The default setup stated there was no battery, clearly an issues as I was running on battery power at the time with my laptop.
Having decided to have a change from Fedora on my netbook I decided to install Linux Mint 16 XFCE edition (This is the simple version of that story, more detailed version to come!). The install of Mint was very easy, quick and to be honest very impressive however I wanted to install i3-wm as a prefer titling window managers and the reduced memory use is useful on my netbook.
