Clement Lefebvre has announced the release of Linux Mint
6 "Xfce" edition: "The
team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 6 Xfce Community
edition. Based on Xubuntu 8.10 'Intrepid Ibex', Linux kernel 2.6.27,
Xfce 4.4.2 and X.Org 7.4, Linux Mint 6 'Xfce' comes with a brand new
software manager, FTP support in mintUpload, proxy support and history
of updates in mintUpdate, mint4win (a Linux Mint installer for
Microsoft Windows), and many other improvements. The Linux Mint 'Xfce'
Community edition comes with the Xfce desktop and provides most of the
functionality found in the main edition while taking fewer resources.
This edition is ideally suited to laptop users with 512 MB of RAM or
less as it represents a very nice compromise between a full-featured
desktop and a fast and light operating system.
