Linux Mint 13 Is Based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Linux Mint logoClement Lefebvre proudly announced a few hours ago, May 23rd, the immediate availability for download of the final release of the Linux Mint 13 operating system.

Dubbed Maya and powered by Linux kernel 3.2, Linux Mint 13 is based on Canonical’s Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) operating system, but distributed with the MATE and Cinnamon desktop environments.

Being based on an LTS (Long Term Support) release, Linux Mint 13 is supported for five years with security updates and patches.

“The team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 13 “Maya”. Available in two editions, Linux Mint 13 features the choice between a productive, stable and mature MATE 1.2 desktop and the brand new modern-looking and exciting Cinnamon 1.4.”

“These two desktops are among the best available, they’re perfectly integrated within Linux Mint and represent great alternatives to Gnome 2 users. Linux Mint 13 is also an LTS (Long Term Support) release and it will be supported until April 2017.” - said Clement Lefebvre in the official release announcement.

Another interesting feature of Linux Mint 13 (Maya) is the new login manager, called MDM (Mint Display Manager), based on the good ol’ GDM (GNOME Display Manager) 2.20.

The artwork in Linux Mint 13 was also upgraded, now powered by the Mint-Z and Mint-X themes, which offer improved support for the GTK3 engine. Moreover, 15 new beautiful photographs (wallpapers) provided by an Irish artist called "masterbutler" will please users eyes.

Linux Mint 13 (Maya) is distributed as Live DVD ISO images with separate editions of MATE and Cinnamon desktop environments, for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. No-codecs ISO images of aforementioned editions are also available for download for USA, Japan and users from countries where distributing media codecs is a legal issue.
