Linux Mint 18 “Sarah” Xfce Officially Released, Linux Mint 18 KDE Coming Soon

Well, it didn’t took long for the rest of the download mirrors to be synchronized with the main Linux Mint servers, and today, August 2, 2016, Clement Lefebvre informs the community about the official release of Linux Mint 18 Xfce, a special flavor of the Ubuntu-based distribution built around the lightweight Xfce desktop environment. As for the new features, we’ve already reported in our previous stories that Linux Mint 18 Xfce is based on the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system, which means that it’s powered by a kernel from the Linux 4.4 LTS series, and it ships with pretty much all the goodies implemented in the Cinnamon and MATE editions of the distro.
