    Don't wait for gold!

    Mint 15 like so many Mints before her is stunning and beautiful!

    No tablet chessboard of applications, no lemming like rush to look like a phone rather than a desktop!
    Just solid improvements carefully fashioned to enhance the users enjoyment.
    I honestly feared what Mint 15 might be like. With so many destro's going for the tablet desktop lay out I was almost afraid to see what 15 might do to my faith in Mint...

    Mint 15 is VERY much like Mint 14, but the improvements show up everywhere and in very pleasing ways.

    I hope you all find the same gratification I have in Mint 15 RC!

    As long as they keep Cinnamon and Mate looking Windowsish, we will be in a familiar environment.
    If they EVER decide to switch to Unity or Gnome3, then everything we love will be thrown out-the-door!

    Hey, Add these links to your initial post: Mint 15 Olivia & Download

    Gnome--grr. What a horrid desktop, I tried it at least ten years ago. Never again!

    AFAIK, Mint 18.2 was the latest update for Mint. Don't know why Mint 15 shows up at all.

    Where are you looking for Mint?
    The most recent update is now Mint 18.3
    The update is painless if you already have Mint 18, 18.1 or 18.2
    You just open the updater, click edit and at the bottom should be Upgrade to Mint 18.3

    Thanks, didn't know that Mint 18.3 is the latest. For me it wouldn't be a painless update. All the same, where does Mint 15 RC fit in, it's way out of whack, afaik.

    Dec 17, 2012. Oh, my SO bad. I don't know why I didn't "get" the date of this post. I'm very sorry, what a bonehead mistake.
