"Installing additional software happens through the MintInstall
program. This looks a lot like other Linux software managers with a
few twists. One neat feature is the thumbnail image of the
application along with a detailed description. There's also a list
of reviewers and their ratings for the package, an overall average
rating along with a list of views from the repository.
"MintBackup will make a copy of everything in your home
directory and save to an archive file. It gives you the option of
excluding files or folders along with explicitly including hidden
files such as your "dot" files like .config, .local,
.openoffice.org2, etc. MintUpload is another extra tool providing a
way to upload files to a public server to share. The latest release
makes it possible to define additional FTP servers as a destination
for uploading files."
