Linux Mint 13 KDE released: But does it live up to expectations?

Filed under
Linux

Hot on the heels of its Xfce build, the final release of Linux Mint 13 KDE is now available for download. This is an iteration that a lot of people have been anxiously awaiting, because it combines a lot of good things in a single package.

As part of the Mint 13 family, it is based on the KDE desktop version of Ubuntu 12.04. So those who want Ubuntu but not Unity, or Mint but not Cinnamon or MATE, and feel that Xfce might be downsizing too much, now have another excellent alternative.

However, it is important to note that Mint 13 KDE is not derived from Kubuntu.

Rest here




Yes It Does

Linux Mint 13 KDE works awesome!!!!!!!I was a bit disapointed with Mint 12 KDE, but not this one! Everthing works great and it has a much finer polish that 12. I have always like KDE better than Gnome too. KDE 4.8 is a big improvement. I like the Cinnamon interface too, but I think I like this better. I like Kmail better than Thunderbird or Evolution too. I wish they put Gimp 2.8 in it though.

The Libreboot C201 from Minifree is really really really ridiculously open source

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
