Reviews

According to the Linux Mint homepage, Linux Mint's purpose is to produce an elegant, up to date and comfortable GNU/Linux desktop distribution. In this review, I will take a look at Linux Mint 2.2 (codename Bianca) and see how the Linux Mint team delivers.

In version 2.2, the following major changes have been made.

Full Story.
