Download Linux Mint 8 for 64-Bit Platforms

,----[ Quote ]
| After the release of Linux Mint 8 back in 
| November, Clement Lefebvre and the 
| developers behind the Linux Mint community 
| announced last evening (December 14th) the 
| immediate availability for download of the 
| 64-bit edition of Linux Mint 8. This version 
| is exactly like the main edition of Linux 
| Mint 8 but compiled for 64-bit processors, 
| such as Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Core 2 Quad 
| or Athlon X2 64. Dubbed Helena, the new 
| Linux Mint 8 operating system is based on 
| the Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) operating 
| system and it is powered by Linux kernel 
| 2.6.31, X.Org 7.4 and the GNOME 2.28.1 
| desktop environment. 


Fluxbox CE, resurrected

,----[ Quote ]
| The Fluxbox Community Edition produced 
| releases for Linux Mint 5 âElyssaâ and Linux 
| Mint 6 âFeliciaâ and it became quite popular 
| among Linux Mint users. But in 2009, due to 
| personal circumstances Shane Joe Lazar, the 
| maintainer of this edition, had to focus his 
| attention elsewhere and so the Fluxbox CE 
| was discontinued. During the release cycle 
| for Linux Mint 7 âGloriaâ, no Fluxbox 
| edition was released.
| Kendall Weaver recently stepped up from the 
| community and worked on a new Fluxbox 
| edition of Linux Mint. We had a conversation 
| and I got the opportunity to test his 
| preliminary ISOs. Today, Iâm happy to 
| welcome him within the development team as 
| the new maintainer of the Fluxbox Community 
| Edition.



Linux Mint 8-Helena

| Running a Linux Mint 8 Live CD, I boot into
| an adorable Linux Mint logo thatâs animated!
| Then the splash screen really grabs my
| attention. I understand Zwopper of the Mint
| community is to âblameâ for this beautiful
| background. Nice Job!

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
