What is Linux Mint

Linux Mint is a Ubuntu- and Debian-based GNU/Linux distribution developed and maintained by a community of developers since 2006. Initially, the project was launched by Clément Lefèbvre, who remains a project leader today.

Linux Mint has easy-to-use elegant user interface and comes in a bundle with a variety of free open-source applications: Firefox, Thunderbird, VLC media player. Numerous other third-party applications are available for out-of-the box installation, including both free and proprietary (Adobe Flash, DVD and MP3 playback codecs) software and components. Using Wine or virtualization environments like VMware, VirtualBox, or KVM, it is possible to install and use applications created for Microsoft Windows.

Linux Mint has three default desktop environments: Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce.
