Linux Mint 14 MATE and Cinnamon preview

Linux Mint 14, code-named Nadia, hit the download mirrors yesterday. That’s less than 10 days after the first Release Candidate was announced. What type of testing does this thing get? By the way, that’s normal for Linux Mint distribution, but again, how well is this distribution tested before it’s released to the public?

I don’t expect an answer to that question, so I’ll just let it be. This release is for the MATE and Cinnamon desktop environments. While a detailed review is still in the works, here are some screen shots from test installations for your viewing pleasure.

First, from a test installation of the Cinnamon desktop.
