[ad#chaapsv2-top]

Did you ever know about Linux’s most popular operating system? No its not Ubuntu, at least that’s what most of us would say. Its the new LINUX Mint.  According to the statistics at DistroWatch (the site that collects data regarding the best Linux Operating systems) the most popular Linux OS currently leading is the new Linux Mint!

The guys at ZDNet have been kind enough to let us know the existence of Linux Mint or else we would have never known about it. I myself (an out of the street LINUX lover) have found out about Linux Mint just now. And when i saw the screenshots of the latest Linux Mint 11 codenamed “Katya”, i was anxious to try it out.

Linux Mint is very elegant looking and of minimalistic styles. It is not too eye candy and doesn’t require a lot of resources to run. In fact it offers an out of the box multimedia solution, meaning you don’t need a high quality graphics card to enjoy its uniqueness. And the nice part is Linux Mint is based on Debian and Ubuntu operating systems, both the distributions, that’s why you get the best of both environments.

linux mint - the interface

Also as you know LINUX Mint is totally free and its code is open source. The perks you get by using this operating system is its interface is powered by GNOME 2.32, which i like the most. Working in Gnome is easy and fast. That’s what i like about Gnome. If you are also a GNOME fan as i am, then you should definitely check out this operating system.

Head to the download page now and start Minting your Linux. The CD version can also be installed using the Windows installer ‘WUBI’.

So pass on your comments if you liked this short review about Linux Mint. Have you tried it yet?
