OpenSource For You - - FOSSBYTES -

The team be­hind Linux Mint has de­cided to let go of the cur­rent snap­shot cy­cle in the De­bian edi­tion for the Linux dis­tri­bu­tion and in­stead switch over to a De­bian sta­ble pack­age base. The cur­rent Linux Mint edi­tions are based on Ubuntu and the team is most likely to stick to that for at least a cou­ple of years. The team re­cently launched the lat­est it­er­a­tion of Linux Mint, a.k.a. ‘Qiana’. Both the Cin­na­mon and Mate ver­sions are now avail­able for down­load with the KDE and XFCE ver­sions ex­pected to come out soon. Mean­while, it has been an­nounced that the next three Linux Mint re­leases would also, in all prob­a­bil­ity, be based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
