http://techie-buzz.com – Just a few minutes ago, Linux Mint 11 “Katya” has been released. Linux Mint is a derivative of Ubuntu which comes with the restricted packages that are not installed in Ubuntu such as audio codecs, video codecs, Flash etc. In short, Linux Mint is an Ubuntu derivative aimed at the new users.New FeaturesLinux Mint 11 is based on Ubuntu 11.04 but it does not use Unity. It does not use GNOME Shell either – it still uses the classic GNOME 2 desktop. This makes Linux Mint a viable choice for the many people who do not like either Unity or GNOME Shell. Software Manager in Linux (General)
