Randy Clark uses OStatic to support Open Source, ask and answer questions and stay informed. What about you?
by an anonymous user on Nov. 25, 2012I installed Mint 13 LTS (Long Term Support) with the idea of getting support for some years for upgrades to components like Cinnnamon without the nuisance of an OS installation (everybody knows it's more reliable to completely fresh install rather than muck around with "in place" OS upgrades).
I've learned that in fact Cinnamon 1.6, the Nemo browser, etc. are available for Mint 13 via a "backport" upgrade and I suppose will eventually be included in the Mint 13 repositories in the normal way. I suggest that when Mint decides a newer version of a desktop environment or other basic element is good enough to be included in a new version of Mint, it should automatically be ported to the repositories for current LTS versions of Mint - that's what LTS should be all about.
