Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon and MATE Editions Are Now Available for Download
Thanks to one of our regular readers who constantly monitored the development progress of the Linux Mint 18 operating systems, we've been informed that the final ISO images are now available for download for both Cinnamon and MATE editions.
At a first glance, it would seem that Linux Mint project leader Clement Lefebvre has approved the ISO images earlier today, June 28, 2016, for landing. Therefore, we checked the Irish mirror, where the ISOs usually appear first, and it looks like they are already available for download in their final, production-ready form.

Wileyfox Spark hands-on: What an £89 Android phone looks like
Regardless, Wileyfox CEO Nick Muir describes the phones' price as "competitive," and it's hard to argue with the balance of hardware and software when you consider the base model Spark costs less than many accessories for rival handsets. Going forward, the firm clearly has big plans — Muir told us the company has shipped 250,000 units of its existing Swift and Storm models, and is aiming at the 2 million mark in the next 12 months. That includes not just the Spark devices, but future, higher-end offerings. Spark is "not indicative of Wileyfox's pricing direction," Muir told us, adding that higher-end models would follow in the next few months.
For the moment, Wileyfox finds itself with an augmented, product portfolio, but one still laser-focused on affordability.
