Linux Mint 9 RC
In case anyone's interested the download for Mint 9 RC has been announced. This'll be the one using Ubuntu 10.04 as its 'base'.

Thanks for the notification. Can't wait to test it out.

Yes, thanks for this link. Really looks good. And as can be seen, many things have been written from scratch, like Software Manager, Backup Tool, Desktop settings manager... so things must be really improved. Other changes too look quite good. Also, other editions like Xfce etc, have become official now. Overall, looks very good.

I don't know how many of the changes in Linux Mint are coming from Ubuntu, because latest version of Ubuntu also has many changes, and this version of Mint is based on Ubuntu 10.04. Anyways, as long as the changes are good, it does not matter where they come from :). Will this be the last release of Mint based on Ubuntu, because I think someone had shared link about Mint moving to Debian as its base.

Thanks for the link to Linux Mint 9 RC. I note that certain windows, such as Appearance Preference looks exactly the same as that in Ubuntu 10.04, except for the choice of wallpapers. :rolleyes:

I'm glad you all found the info useful! I'm looking forward to trying it out to see the similarities with Ubuntu 10.04. I think the Mint Menu is a good intro to Ubuntu for those thinking about moving from Windows. I look at it as step 1 then step 2 is Ubuntu and step 3 .... well who knows! Arch or Crunchbang perhaps?
