"I’ve been somewhat tardy in getting to the KDE
version of Linux Mint 8. But I’ve finally been able to sit
down with it and thus couldn’t resist writing a review. As
great as the GNOME version of Linux Mint is, it simply isn’t
for everybody. Many people still prefer KDE to GNOME and a separate
review is helpful for those looking for an alternative for GNOME.
"Please note that this release weighs in at a chunky 1.16GB so
it’s not going to fit onto a CD. You’ll need a DVD to
burn it to before you can run it as a Live DVD or install it on
your system. If you’re using VirtualBox, VMWare or Parallels,

"What’s New In This Release
" Linux Mint 8 KDE is based on Kubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala),
Linux 2.6.31, Xorg 7.4 and KDE 4.3.4.
"New Features & Changes
"Here’s a brief list of new stuff and changes: Screenshots

up more space to view software and see reviews.
"Now there is no need to manually refresh Software Manager,
instead you will be automatically notified of new
"Multiple application install/removal in Software Manager."
