Linux Mint 14 Is a Breath of Fresh Air

Reviews

Linux Mint 14, released in December and dubbed the "Nadia" version, is loaded with a horde of improvements to all four of its desktop environments. It is not usually necessary to grab every new release to a distro, but Nadia is a significant upgrade to an evolving Linux OS. This one is a keeper.

The Linux Mint distro became popular very quickly, It was introduced in 2006 and is now pegged as one of the more widely used Linux operating systems. Some download and usage reports place it ahead of Canonical's Ubuntu distro.

This latest release has most of its improvements under the hood, so comfort zones are not threatened if you upgrade from earlier versions Mint 12 or Mint 13. And new Linux Mint users will find an easy transition away from Canonical's Ubuntu Unity desktop and the straightforward Gnome desktop retained by other Linux distros.
