Linux Mint 7 'Gloria'

posted 30 May 2009, 03:09 by David Rice
Tuesday May 26th saw the seventh release of one of the favourite Ubuntu remixes - Linux Mint.

Mint incorporates the best of Ubuntu with extra configuration tools, software and media codecs built in.

This makes an easier experience for Linux users.

As the website says:

"The 7th release of Linux Mint comes with numerous bug fixes and a lot of improvements. In particular the menu system, the application manager and the upload manager now provide new features such as “Suggestions”, “Featured applications”, “SCP and SFTP support”. The underlying base of the operating system was also strengthened with a new adjustment mechanism which makes Linux Mint more robust and less vulnerable to Ubuntu package upgrades, and the introduction of virtual and meta packages which simplify upgrade paths and the installation of multiple desktop environments."

It's well worth a download and a very good distro.
