Linux Mint 15 MATE and Cinnamon screen shots

The latest edition of Linux Mint was released late yesterday. Code-named Olivia, Linux Mint 15 brings the latest editions of the MATE and Cinnamon desktop environments.

This article features some screen shots from test installation of both flavors in a virtual environment.

First from Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon test installation.

The login screen is beautiful. Not only that, you can customize it any way you want.

If you don’t have a system with hardware-accelerated graphics, it will run in what’s called Software Rendering mode.

This is the default desktop. According to sources from deep inside the Linux Mint team, this is the best desktop background ever designed by man, or woman. That’s why it will be the default desktop on all releases of Linux Mint or Linux Mint Debian from now till Thy Kingdom Come.

Another highlight is the Software Sources manager, which makes it brain-dead easy to manage software sources on the system. No need to do anything from the command-line, when it comes to adding repos or PPAs to the system.
