Curious to see the work done by the Linux Mint team and community in modernizing the KDE edition of the popular GNU/Linux operating system, we grabbed the 64-bit Live ISO image to get an early taste. To our surprise, the distro looks gorgeous, with a dark theme that dresses both the bottom panel and Applications Menu. As expected, Linux Mint 18 "Sarah" KDE Edition is based on the latest Kubuntu/Ubuntu technologies, which means that the distribution is powered by the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel, and uses the KDE Applications 15.12.3 software suite on top of the KDE Plasma 5.6.5 desktop environment.
