Linux Mint 2.1

Filed under

Linux Mint is an installable LiveCD based on the latest version of Ubuntu Linux. Linux Mint, like Ubuntu is a distribution that has the ability to give you a try before you buy and you can try Linux Mint without installing it to your hard drive and if you decided to install it, it is quite simple to do.

Installation and Configuration

As stated above, Linux Mint is a Live CD meaning that you just burn the CD, pop it into your CD/DVD drive and it will run. The performance of Linux Mint in Live CD mode will vary on the amount of memory you have in your system and with more memory, comes better performance.

After trying out all the features, and decide to install Linux Mint to your hard drive, you will not have to worry about complicated installers. Linux Mint installs after going through a few simple steps and a simple reboot and your system is now completely installed.

The installation time will vary on your system specifications and it was still much quicker than a Windows XP install.
