A.3. Linux Mint

Linux Mint is a (partly) community-maintained distribution, supported by donations and advertisements. Their flagship product is based on Ubuntu, but they also provide a “Linux Mint Debian Edition” (LMDE), which is based on Debian Stable with a few backports. LMDE is available for both 32 and 64-bit.
In both cases, the initial installation involves booting a live DVD or a live USB storage device.
这个发行版的目的是可以简化访问先进技术,在通用软件之上提供特定的图形用户界面。例如,尽管 Linux Mint 默认依赖 Cinnamon 来代替 GNOME(但是它还是包括了 MATE,以及 Xfce);类似的,包管理界面,虽然是基于 APT 的,但是也提供了一个特定的的评估每次软件包升级风险的接口。
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。
