KDE Returns to Mint

Filed under

Linux

I for one have been feeling sorely disappointed without a KDE version of Linux Mint lately, but no more. That's right Boys and Girls, KDE has returned to Mint. Yesterday, June 23, Clement Lefebvre posted two key announcements that should make a KDE lover's heart sing.

The first I saw came with the announcement of the codename for Linux Mint 16, which is "Petra." Clem said, "Petra, 'πέτρα' in Greek, means stone or rock." But then came the news. He continued by saying Petra will come in the editions featuring KDE.
