Linux Mint 18.3 “Sylvia” Beta Cinnamon and MATE Editions Now Available to Download

The Linux Mint development team has uploaded today the Linux Mint 18.3 Beta release to the official download mirror, with 64-bit and 32-bit live ISO images of both Cinnamon and MATE editions of the operating system, though no official announcement was published at the moment of writing. We downloaded both Cinnamon and MATE editions of Linux Mint 18.3 “Sylvia” Beta and took a quick look inside to see what’s new. We can confirm that the OS is based on Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS (Xenial Xerus) and runs the Linux 4.10 HWE (Hardware Enablement) kernel from Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus).
