Linux Mint 13 is out!

Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon

The Linux Mint team as finally released Linux Mint 13 named “Maya”.

Available in two editions, Linux Mint 13 features the choice between a productive, stable and mature MATE 1.2 desktop and the brand new modern-looking and exciting Cinnamon 1.4. These two desktops are among the best available, they’re perfectly integrated within Linux Mint and represent great alternatives to Gnome 2 users. Linux Mint 13 is also an LTS (Long Term Support) release and it will be supported until April 2017.

I will probably be switching back to Linux Mint after using Ubuntu 12.04 for a while. I've been encountering some bugs in Ubuntu that annoyed me a lot. For instance, I can't use my uni's WPA2-PEAP connection, Totem sometimes freeze when playing videos and something when I close my laptop lid the screen will not turn back on. I can;t wait to try out Linux mint 13 using Cinnamon.
