Linux Mint

Knoppix Logo

Linux Mint is an operating system for personal computers, focusing on elegance. While Mint is mostly based on (and compatible with) Ubuntu, the design of the User interface is considerably different. These differences include:

* A distinct user interface, including a simplified bootloader, desktop layout, theme, and the custom Mint menu.
* Installation of plugins required to play common media formats out of the box
* The Mint Tools, a collection of system tools designed to make system management and administration easier for end users.

Linux Mint is available for download in the form of ISO images, which can be used to create Live CDs or Live USBs. The latter can be created either manually or using UNetbootin [1].
