This month's DVD
Linux Mint 14 & Knoppix 7.0.4
Linux Mint 14 “Nadia”
Linux Mint is a wildly popular Ubuntu-based desktop Linux with an emphasis on simplicity. Along with a strong assortment of open source applications and utilities, Mint takes pains to provide proprietary drivers and other helper tools for seamless-as-possible operations. The Mint 14 release features a new Windows Quick-list app for managing windows across multiple workspaces, as well as Alt+Tab window-switcher virtualization and a handy notification tool. Also debuting with this release is the new Nemo file browser, a fork of Gnome’s Nautilus file manager based on the Nautilus 3.4 codebase.
As a special bonus, this month’s DVD also comes with the Knoppix 7.0.4 Live Linux distro, a favorite tool of system rescue specialists and other IT professionals. Boot Knoppix from your DVD drive and use this disc to explore the Knoppix rescue tricks described in this issue.
