Hello From Saint Louis Missouri USA

Postby tidfisk on Tue Nov 19, 2013 10:46 pm

Hello!

I'm a long time Mac user who just made the switch to Linux last week. I'm crazy impressed with Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon, and have enjoyed using it as my main desktop environment so far. I look forward to discovering ways I can contribute this amazing community! Thanks!

that is not a finished version (its in development), so it may cause issues. i dont know if you will get smoothly updated to the finished version as things progress, or if you need to reinstall at some point.

i want version 16, been reading about other people using the RC, i'm waiting for the final release, then switching from xubuntu to cinnamon version.

Generally, applying Level 1, 2 and 3 updates automatically upgrades you from RC release to final release; unless there is some drastic changes done to mint within the period. So if you wanna taste Petra RC, don't let fear of not upgrading automatically to final release keep you from it. :) Happy Minting!
