Mint-specific apps - don't say "mint"

Postby Uncle Spellbinder on Sun Nov 29, 2009 10:54 am

Running Helena, final.

I'm wondering why the Mint-specific apps, or "tools" do not say "Mint". I've seen screenshots of MintUpdate and MintInstall, yet mine says "update manager " and "software manager". Why would this be?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Anyone?

Just curious if I have a minor issue or is that just the way it is in Mi8nt 8?

The branding was removed. We are easily recognized these days and removing the branding allows other distributions to adopt our tools.
