You now can buy Linux Mint on a machine straight from the manufacturer. The machines look nice, check it out here. We love seeing manufacturers like CompuLab, who is making this machine, support linux. We love Mint so this should be a pretty awesome machine for browsing or your kids.
When we think of two great tastes that go together we don’t normally think of Cinnamon and Mint. When it comes to naming stuff though we think it works. The folks on the Linux Mint team have decided to take on creating their own window manager. We at the least they are going to fork GNOME 3 and make it look more like GNOME 2 than Unity. The team is going to keep the awesome new features of GNOME 3 but make it look and act more like a normal desktop OS instead of a touchscreen interface. Yet another example of how opensource kicks closed sources butt. I would like to see Windows 8 people fork a major part of their OS and make it look like what everyone is used to instead of Metro. A cool recap of the press release can be found here.

If Distrowatch page views are your yardstick then yes. But in reality its’ kind of hard to give the win to Linux Mint since their flagship distro if based on Ubuntu. The folks over at BeginLinux.com sucked us into this debate and you can hear more of our conversation about it on the podcast.
