Mint - Linux Mint 8.0 review

Filed under
Linux

One of the most popular Linux distrubtions, Linux Mint's latest edition was bound to attract plenty of interest. And rightly so, too.

So what's new? You can add new places to the menu system, perhaps to direct you straight to your movie collection at the touch of a button. There are numerous graphical and interface touches that help make things that bit easier to navigate. Synaptic has been brought on board to handle updates to software packages, and there's more flexibility in the packages in general, and where they come from. A new upload manager is now included too.

None of these drastically alters Mint, and there's more of an overall feel of a nip and tuck rather than anything close to an overhaul. But given the success of the distribution to date, that seems a wise path to follow.
