"One of the nicer things about mintInstall in this release is
Featured Applications which highlights some popular apps for users.
While the list might seem basic or obvious to experienced Linux
users, newbies might find some of the suggestions listed there
quite helpful or at the very least interesting. I like this kind of
approach for a desktop Linux distribution."
"It's important not to assume that everybody knows everything
about every last Linux application ever created. Welcoming new
people into the Linux fold by gently giving them an introduction to
some useful apps is a very good thing. Having said that we could
debate whether or not the Featured Applications list should have
more or less apps."
