A.3. Linux Mint

Linux Mint 是一个(部分的)社区维护发布版,由捐助和广告来支持。它的旗舰产品是基于 Ubuntu 的,但是它也提供了一个“Linux Mint Deiban Editon”变种,它处于不断的发展中(因为它基于 Debian 的 Testing 版本)。在这两种发行版中,初始安装都是从 LiveDVD 启动的。
The distribution aims at simplifying access to advanced technologies, and provides specific graphical user interfaces on top of the usual software. For instance, Linux Mint relies on Cinnamon instead of GNOME by default (but it also includes MATE as well as Plasma and Xfce); similarly, the package management interface, although based on APT, provides a specific interface with an evaluation of the risk from each package update.
Linux Mint包括了大量的用户可能用到的用于提升用户体验的专有软件。比如:Adobe Flash 和多媒体编解码器。
