Linux Mint 11 and Fedora 15: In a single week, two gems debut

Katherine Noyes, PC World | May 26, 2011
It's not every week that sees the launch of a major release from one of the most popular Linux distributions. This week, however, we've had the benefit of not just one but two such landmark debuts.

Improvements to the Desktop Settings tool make it more "desktop-agnostic," the project team says, while system improvements include a new "apt download" command and Adobe Flash plugins.

LibreOffice, gThumb and Banshee are among the default applications in Katya, which is available for free download on the Linux Mint site.

Hear that sound in the distance? It's the ranks of the Linux-using masses growing even bigger. Weekend project: take these two new gems for a commitment-free test drive.
