Linux Mint 15 ‘Olivia’ (Cinnamon) Review

Filed under
Linux

Linux Mint is a GNU/Linux distribution to which I have witnessed a great deal of respect. It is a solid operating system that comes with a desktop environment of its own (though it is based on Gnome Shell & its applications) and when it comes to usability & control, it really puts the users at the top.

So as soon as Linux Mint 15 ‘Olivia’ got officially released, I downloaded it and as usual, ran few tests, took few measurements, and came up with this review. Linux Mint has two flavors, featuring ‘Cinnamon’ (1.8) & ‘MATE’ (1.6) desktop environments. This review is based on the ‘Cinnamon’ edition.

But please remember that I will not be able go through all the slight changes, but will mention some of the easily visible changes of the desktop & ‘Nemo’ (file manager). Then towards the end, I will also present you with performance based statistics that I have gathered as well.
