Quick Look: Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon Edition

I've been quite an avid follower of the Linux operating system world ever since '07 when I discovered a Ubuntu 7.04 CD at a friend's house. I can safely say, Linux has definitely improved over the years in regards to functionality and stability. I made the switch to Linux Mint only just a few years ago when Linux Mint 12 came out. I remember the days when Cinnamon first appeared after MGSE (Mint GNOME Shell Extensions) project didn't live up to expectations.

Well enough talk about the past, this is the present- with Linux Mint 17.1 Cinnamon Edition (based on the Ubuntu 14.04 codebase). Linux Mint 17.1 brings in the best of 17 with some more improvements! The installation went pretty smoothly but I encountered some minor issues after getting the system set up.
