I was thinking about this...
the status of this idea is implemented,does it mean it is possible to use this option
The new mintbackup is ready and it solves part of this problem.
It's funny you mention that idea, because that's exactly what ikey is working on at the moment! With a bit of luck this will make it in time for Mint 9.
With any upgrade there are going to be things that dont work.. But in general a book mark tool sounds good. You go through the aps perhaps the Software manager or with another tool !! (so the things from package manager are kept) and somehow tag all the things you want to keep.. an app list is saved in a desired location like /Home or usb memory stick.
then you feed this list into something that runs >apt >get >install
Probably wont get any development time but I like it.
I love the idea. It could be something kept on Linux Mint servers and we could "sync" with mintInstall maybe ? This isn't a small project, but would be great ! It could even be a good idea if you want to keep a PC park up to date with softwares...a little bit like GPO in Windows even...this is a much bigger project maybe, but could help in medium-large business ???
Really good idea.
an improved apt-on-cd would be a good thing
Love the idea, but perhaps a more advanced apt-on-cd that could copy everything including xorg customizations, hardware configuration and such, compress it & make it an iso or something. Also add an option to disable copying of hardware config if you need to install a duplicate system on a different machine...
really good idea
While this is an awesome idea, the ideas posted here should be about the site as stated by clem.
