Not bad at all. I kind of figured the location of Ice in the menu would have been a little more obvious, but to each their own. :)

It's obvious if you're the one that put it there ;)

I did find myself pointing at the menu and mumbling "internet" whilst watching it .. I then had a good laugh at myself  :D

That said for someone who has "read" what it does, but never really used it, I get where he was coming from... Ice is both an "Internet" application .. but it's also a "Configuration" utility.

IIRC , the first time I ever used Peppermint 2 I expected to find it in "Preferences" or "Accessories" too .. I expected "Internet" to be for applications used to access the internet, not so much to configure them.

It's only 'obvious' once you know ;)

Maybe it would have been better to spend a little time to get slightly more comfortable with Ice's location and functionality BEFORE recording the video though.
