Linux Mint 19 Now Available
With this fresh update, Linux Mint continues to be among the leading Linux distributions, and is a compelling alternative to both Windows 10 and MacOS. Linux Mint 19 offers a clean, stable, secure Windows-like desktop environment, with long term support until 2023.
Linux Mint is just as easy to use as Windows 7, and a lot easier than Windows 8.x or even 10. You can install Linux Mint as many times as you want, on as many computers as you want – with no restrictions, no costs. Linux Mint, like Linux in general, is entirely free.
