Linux Mint 18.1 "Serena" is out

Postby viking60 » 16 Dec 2016, 17:12

ImageThe undisputed king of Linux distros has been occupying the top spot at Distrowatch for years. This is probably the distro to recommend for Newbies but also for businesses who consider using Linux desktops.

Linux Mint Serena comes with the 4.4 kernel and will be supported until 2021.
Mint comes with Mate or Cinnamon which are good Gnome 2 derivatives
Important changes are that the search function in the menu has been replaced Google with DuckDuckGo. The Wikipedia searches will point to the versions in your chosen language.
The GUI update manager does now show where the updates come from.
Time to have another look at Mint.....

Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Centos on the server - Arch on the laptop.
