Linux Mint
Category: Popular distributions
Linux Mint- a GNU/Linux system distribution based on Ubuntu and Debian, aimed at novice users. The distribution emphasizes simplicity of use, useful applications and full support for them right after installation. The developers took care to add many graphic overlays. The standard installation CD contains most of the popular proprietary software - the Adobe Flash Player plug-in, Java, and a large collection of audio and video codecs to play all popular music and movie files, even using the Live CD version (in Ubuntu such software must be installed by yourself). Despite the fact that the distribution is mainly based on Ubuntu, the creators of Minta cut themselves off from its ideology. They criticize Ubuntu primarily for its conservative, according to them, adherence to the idea of free software, so that most popular audio, video and closed technologies are not available in Ubuntu by default.

Mint as a Debian-based distribution is very robust and gives users access to a large collection of software packages. Currently, the Minta repository contains over 100,000 packages. Although Mint is also based on the Ubuntu code and repository, it goes its own way. Its biggest advantages are simplicity of use, access to a large software package and full support available immediately after installation. An additional advantage is the friendly interface and the ability to change many graphic overlays.
