Mint 7 on VirtualBox

I installed Mint 7 Linux on a virtual machine (VirtualBox). Setup was:

512M RAM
10G Disk, Fixed Size
32M Video RAM

I installed correctly, including the guest operating system drivers, and ran well.

The look and feel reminds me very much of Windows XP ... seems like this may be a comfortable fit for folks wanting to try Linux.
