Publisher's Description

Linux Mint is a variant of Ubuntu with integrated media codecs. Complete with a custom desktop and menus, several unique configuration tools, a web-based package installation interface, and a number of different editions. Perhaps most importantly, this is one project where the developers and users are in constant interaction, resulting in dramatic, user-driven improvements with every new release.

Linux Mint is an excellent OS. I have been using it since inception. The graphics are great, the OS is great and you can icon to the task bar any web page and it opens instantly. Also not like Microsoft, the updates are fast and less then 3 minutes. What more do you want from an OS. Security is optimal also.

Still no upgrade channel, so EVERY TIME they update it you have to reinstall. Debian is now the only reliable distro if you want a persistamt install. Arch is crap since it has an installer from 1979, ubuntu is too unreliable and cant make up its mind about anything. Hell at this point I might say linux desktop is dead on arrival.

Too many flavors of ubuntu out there that bring nothing to the table, and here is another one.

Best DE going now is Deepin, and you can install Deepin desktop on ubuntu now using a PPA. Its the best way to go.

Dont waste your time on Mint as it uses the clunky and redundant Cinnamon desktop which feels like Windows98, and still has no upgrade path far as I know meaning you have to reinstall the entire OS every time they make an update.

Seems like a nice advance over 18.3. The beta is still a bit slower, as in most betas...look forward to the final. It's my favorite distro.

I just upgraded from Mint 18 Cinnamon to Mint 18.1 this morning using the update manager. The upgrade went very smooth.

I love Linux Mint. It doesn't use the resources that Window 10 does and it's has pretty much everything I need. The system is getting to be very user friendly with each upgrade and I use it just as much as I do Windows 10.

I also would like to give Terabyte a little plug as it will make a system backup of Linux Mint for you without any hassle. I have the option to use "Image For Linux" ISO or the "Image for DOS" one. I prefer to use Image for DOS. Also I can mount a Linux Mint backup from Windows to extract files if needed. (But you need "Image For Windows" to extract files from Linux) http://www.terabyteunlim...m/image-for-windows.htm

Meh, ubuntu is dead now they have taken too many insane turns, and all distros based on it will have to dump it at some point.

If you want to see the future try Deepin linux, custom DE based on Debian.

Pros: The best for begginers!
My choice for all Internet services!

Cons: If you like cinnamon a good machine is necessary!
Be careful with updates - 'timeshift' before ever!

Bottom Line: Excellent alternative for Windows. Today my OS!

Cons: beta a bit slower than 18.3 released version, but that should change.

Bottom Line: Seems like a nice advance over 18.3. The beta is still a bit slower, as in most betas...look forward to the final. It's my favorite distro.

I've been using mint 17 since the release candidate on virtual box. It runs very well but I just wanted to add that all the wobbly window effects using compiz won't work properly on a virtualbox installation (from Mint forums). I tried it anyway and lost the ability to close and move windows. Mate is good enough for me.

I have been using Mint since its inception. Version Mate 16 still running hot. However, in a virtual box install, Rebecca is not up to specifications. Specifically cube, animations, etc.

I really like Linux Mint but I miss the LXDE edition.
