Rare breed: Linux Mint 17.2 offers desktop familiarity and responds to user wants

Reviews

Mint 17.2 is well worth the upgrade, though much of what you want from it might be easier to get by just upgrading Cinnamon or MATE on their own. The Mint Linux upgrade guide tends to emphasize the wisdom on the old saying, "if it ain't broke..." Those are good words to live by, but that said, I had no trouble at all upgrading from Mint 17.1. All you need to do is open Update Manager and head to the Edit menu, where you should see an option to "Upgrade to Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela."

Linux Mint 17.2 is an LTS release and will receive security updates until 2019. And until 2016, all Mint releases will continue to use the same base package system (Ubuntu 14.04). Maintaining desktop familiarity may never be easier.
