Linux Mint 9 is done. An official announcement is still pending; however, all the ISOs are now available for download.
Mint is an operating system designed to be completely functional out of the box. Linux Mint 9, which is based on Ubuntu 10.04, is in some ways, a refined version of an already excellent distro. Check out the videos embedded below to see Isadora in action.
Linux Mint boasts of a host of new and improved features including a new software manager, backup tool, tweaked interface, improved update manager and Mint4Win.
CD as well as DVD images for Linux Mint 9 are available. The DVD version is just about 100 MB larger than the CD version and simply includes additional wallpapers and packages such as Sun Java, Samba and ttf-DejaVu, which could not fit into the CD.
