Surprisingly, the team behind Linux Mint said that they will give support to their distro until the next 5 years (counting from 2016). This new KDE and Xfce versions of Mint come with several new tweaks and refinements, which is intended to improve the OS and makes its usage more delightful.

Now Let's Take A Look At the Two New Releases

Getting the ISO file is very easy as usual, just log on to the Linux Mint Download Page and get the ISO img files for yourself, based on your machine's architecture. It comes readily avail-be in 64 and 32 bits respectively.

Finally, I highly recommend Linux Mint for any Linux beginner or aspirant. Or better still, try out Zorin 12 which has some similar features with Microsoft's Windows X
