Linux Mint 13 "Maya" Released
Homepage / Download / What's New / Release Notes / Blog
The team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 13 “Maya”.
Available in two editions, Linux Mint 13 features the choice between a productive, stable and mature MATE 1.2 desktop and the brand new modern-looking and exciting Cinnamon 1.4. These two desktops are among the best available, they’re perfectly integrated within Linux Mint and represent great alternatives to Gnome 2 users. Linux Mint 13 is also an LTS (Long Term Support) release and it will be supported until April 2017.

Oooer swanky, I've always liked the look of Mint. Even their glossy icons are made right. Ubuntu is turning into everything I despise about design.
This'll be thrown on my lappy tonight!

Did you try 12.04? Unity is better than it used to be.

i left ubuntu to move to xubuntu which uses xfce and is now looking more like normal gnome each day.

I initially installed 11.10 on a school machine to recover data from a broken NAS box we had, then upped it to 12.04, before taking the plunge on my home machines, from my pov and comparatively to the "dreaded" windows, unity wasnt that bad, it looked ok and I had ubuntu tweaks installed also to get some extra options, but when trying other distros, it just lacked options I thought.
Linux has been good fun so far though, I like researching and solving stuff, it was a real pig to configure to get internet access through our LEA provided ISA proxy, I discovered even when using a distro that has proxy features, it doesnt necessarily mean that its going to work similar to windows, had to master ntlmaps quite fast, home wise its installed and worked out of the box without issue, things like Wine and playonlinux have got around any other problems so I can play world of warcraft/diablo3, but I am finding this technology far from boring and coming from a windows background, its actually enjoyable fiddling and tweaking bits of the OS to suit my own ends and love that everything im looking at so far, is free.
