Is mild active rosin flux better for Pb free solder?

I tried the pb free solder and absolutely hated it. I had trouble getting it to flow properly unless I used a 40+ watt iron. This was the whisker thin stuff, not thick solder at all. Your mileage may vary though since you are probably using a different flux that I did.

What I had (the flux that is) I picked up from Radio Shack a few years back, but soldering with and without it gave me the same results.

Let us know how your results turn out and what you did to achieve them. I sort of hate to waste a pound of solder ...lol.
