Linux Mint 13 “Maya” is Here

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.

just noticed this seems to require that the Intel VT-X to be on (on my Intel i3-2120 CPU) for VirtualBox otherwise it won't even run it seems so i had to go into my UEFI bios and enable it.

i heard good things from other users here saying this is better than ubuntu etc so i just got a hold of the x64 iso with the default 'MATE' interface as it appears the other version (i.e. Cinnamon) looks like more of a test and requires a more modern graphics card to use properly and appears, like they claim on their official site, it's a bit less stable.

so the safer choice appears to be the MATE version and not the Cinnamon.

but i am just going to play with it in a bit using the VirtualBox app on my PC as i got plenty of RAM on my new PC (8GB) so i should be able to run it pretty smoothly as i can give it 1-1.5GB of RAM which should be plenty to get it running at it's best.
