Mint Linux gifts Unity haters with 'Nadia' ... plus her Mate

Mint 14 plus UI update

The essential guide to IT transformation

Ubuntu users with a hankering for Gnome can take comfort: the latest version of Linux distro Mint has been released.

Mint 14, codenamed Nadia, is based on Ubuntu 12.10 comes with Mate 1.4, an updated version of the Mint user interface with greater stability and bug fixes.

Mint continued the Gnome 2 look with Mate 1.x, but it featured what the project called “hiccups” and a few regressions. Mate 1.4 finally fixes these bugs.

Other changes include character map, fast alt-tabbing, and a selection of notification styles.

There are also improvements to the Cinnamon shell, the Mint Display Manager and the software manager.

The Mint Linux project is led by Clement Lefebvre. It’s based on Ubuntu and has seen some interest during the last year while the Canonical-managed distro has undergone some interface changes, moving away from Gnome to its own, new Unity interface.

This year saw the launch of the first line of Mint hardware, mintBox. ®
