A system based on Debian

,----[ Quote ]
| The idea of a Linux Mint desktop based on 
| top of Debian Testing is quite seducing. 
| Itâs much faster than Ubuntu and the current 
| Linux Mint desktops, it uses less resources, 
| and it opens the door for a rolling 
| distribution, with a continuous flow of 
| updates and no jumps from one release to 
| another. Itâs something weâve always been 
| tempted to do. Needless to say, whether itâs 
| been because of our lack of communication on 
| that topic or not, this has been a source of 
| numerous rumors within the community.



Linux Mint 9 KDE Release Candidate Available

,----[ Quote ]
| The KDE version of Linux Mint 9 (codename:
| Isadora), will instantly look and feel
| familiar to KDE users and comes packaged with
| new software such as Miro, which streams
| video from webistes in its own player,
| BleachBit, for hard drive cleaning, and
| Acetoniso, for converting video and images.
| Linux Mint 9 KDE features a new software
| manager that can handle more than 30,000
| packages and remove and install applications
| asynchronously, making it possible to install
| separate applications at the same time and
| install applications in the background.


Linux Mint 9 Isadora - You betrayed me, dear!

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux Mint is a very popular, Ubuntu-based
| Linux distribution. It's Ubuntu with extra
| polish and more features for new and less
| experienced people, making it friendly and
| usable out of the box. For me, the general
| sentiment has always run true. Mint has shown
| good behavior and never fell short of the
| expectations. Funny though, for an unknown,
| cosmic reason, I have always tested the even-
| numbered Mint releases, Daryna, Felicia,
| Helena. Today, I'll break the rule and have a
| go at Mint 9, codename Isadora.
