Which version should i dl

Postby smoothsensation on Fri Aug 01, 2008 12:14 am

I am planning on running mint linux as my primary OS for my desktop, so i was wondering which version of mint should i dl. I noticed there were several to choose from when i go to the download button, but am confused on the differences of the downloads. This is my first time actually using linux as a primary OS if that makes a difference.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Download Mint Elyssa main edition. Free edition only has open source software, which is more ideologically pure, but harder to use (at first). Mint XFCE and KDE are community editions; nothing wrong with that (Mint KDE CE is my personal favorite), but they're not the main release; to start off, I think you'll find the most postings and support for the main.
