"Whenever a new version of Ubuntu is released, a new version of Linux Mint soon follows. This time around it's Linux Mint 9. Linux Mint 9 is based on Ubuntu 10.04.

"I gave Ubuntu 10.04 a big thumbs up in my review, and I've been eagerly anticipating the release of Linux Mint 9. So how does Linux Mint 9 stack up? Is it still "a better Ubuntu" than Ubuntu itself?

"What's New In This Release
There's a lot of new stuff in this release and here's some of what you will find in Linux Mint 9.

The Linux Mint Menu
The menu has been improved. If you turn on 3D effects, you can view a partly transparent menu. You can also now right-click on an item in the menu to edit it. You also have the option of changing the menu's default behavior from showing what you looked at last to defaulting to your favorites. You can even right-click items to add them to your desktop and panel. I love the right-clicking features in the menu, it makes it very fast to change items or put them on your panel or desktop."
