I use assoGiate since Lucid 10.04, and i find it brilliant: easy to use, does its job perfectly. It has great options and features in a simple, solid, intuituve GUI. And great documentation too. I dont think a new "Mint File Types Manager" should be developed. Everything i wanted so far was graciously handled by assogiate.
I agree with Alexio's idea. A file association manager is needed for a friendly desktop/general purpose distro such as Linux Mint.
I can't find much info on Assogiate out there, and so cannot attest to its quality. It might be a good idea to develop a new Mint File Types Manager.
