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.

  1. Mint is great in KDE and all, but KDE really needs a makeover. The fonts look cramped, and the stainless steal look, is old. Last time I checked, it wasn’t easy to change that (it was, at one KDE 3 point, kinda). It’s shame really. They were making those activities, when the basics are not (completely) finished, and built out.

    1. Well fonts are distro setting. It has nothing to do with KDE. they just look as they are set on system, regardless of the desktop. And The theme of everything can easily be changed. It’s a lot easier to configure this in KDE than in any other desktop.
