\o/ It Has Arrived! \o/

On a download server near you!

Linux Mint 20, the mighty Ulyana, after much of anticipation and public alpha- and beta testing, is nothing really new for anybody anymore, right?

But now it’s officially available from Mint’s mirrors around the world, for the holdouts and slowpokes among you guys. If you download Mint now you get the real McCoy, no testing stuff anymore …

I guess your already installed Beta systems will update automatically with the next system update. Or be save and install from scratch. It’s only, like, 10 minutes of your lockdown time.

In any way, the wait is over and Linux Mint has officially joined the rest of the Ubuntu world. Let me know what you guys think of the Ubuntu 20.04-based new Mint version. Is it better than ever before, does it handle the snap/flatpak situation in any satisfying way, is it granny-proof? Is it snappy? Fun to werk with? Feel in good hands with Clem and the Minty gang?

Or do you feel the nagging sensation deep down in your gut, the hunch that it’s maybe time to focus on a future career in some Arch environment? Just asking for a friend. =^.^=

Like every time when Mint releases a new version, it causes some ripples in the Linux universe’s space/time continuum, the very fabric of our existence. Even more so with Mint 20, which is a LTS, Long Term Support, version and and will cuddle and get you most elegantly through the next 5 years.

Only route more secure/lazy would be a Debian install. But let’s not open that can of worms right now. ๐Ÿ˜


Guys, I expect the comment section to fukn explode! Call in, all the lines are open now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ok, better after I told them to kick the guy’s butt off my blawg! I’m the mighty editrix around here and when I say No Men! I really mean it! Basta! End of story.



  1. ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, Linux Mint finally came out with their official release of Linux Mint 20.

    Linux Mint has lots of fans worldwide.

    And, I have to mention that Linux Mint has a reputation for being rock-solid.

    • “I have to mention that Linux Mint has a reputation for being rock-solid.”

      No need to mention that, Renard. ๐Ÿ™‚ Everybody knows how stable each and every Linux is, even if Debian has managed to make the term Rock-Solid congruent with, well, Debian. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      For me, rock-solid means nothing but glacerial development speed and behind-the-moon mindset of the devs.

      And yes, as DW’s #3 distro we expect Mint to be a global top hit.

      • Lan file sharing. Hopefully just do away with moving files via a usb stick. That’s if I have read it correctly. I just like saying warpinator.

        • So nothing but a local network from hubby’s computer to mine? We send emails back and forth since we’re not sophisticated enough to care about networking stuff. We also have a buncha Linux ISOs on sticks and that’s the fastest, most easy and reliable method to carry data from A to B. ๐Ÿ™‚


          • I think it makes it super simple, even easier than email or usb. Will try it out in the week. Plus as a couple of my machines only have usb on the rear of the case its awkward.


                • No, you’re right, Neil.

                  Extension cords, physical media, card readers, that’s all so 80s-ish. We should be able to just push files into warpinator and share them with the speed of light. If only I wasn’t so lazy. :/

                  But since I’m using my sticks anyway, for installs, I thought why not free one of them to schlepp data from one PC to the other. Or, as we often do, just unplug the whole external HDD with our entire movie library on it and share that one.
