Linux Mint 7 (KDE)

Filed under

I recently took a look at the Gnome version of Linux Mint 7. I’ve been patiently waiting for the KDE version to be finished and now it’s finally here. So I snagged a copy and gave it a whirl.

What’s New In This Release

As with the Gnome version there’s some great new stuff in this release:

KDE 4.2.4
Amarok 2.1
Firefox Bundled with Moonlight and Silverlight Plugins
Linux Kernel 2.6.28
Ubiquity installer supports ext4 filesystem
Based on Ubuntu 9.04 (faster boot times, better wi-fi/3G connection switching, better notifications)
mintMenu (trash status, suggestions, keyboard shortcut)
mintInstall (featured apps, screenies downloads, better GUI)
mintUpdate (package sizes, no tray icon blinking, changelogs)
mintUpload (ad-free, graphical service manager, gui buffs, scp/sftp support)
mintWelcome (new popup welcome screen)
