Re: Linuxmint 13 point release

Thanks Vincent. As Linux mint 13 is LTS, it is a better candidate for Senior citizens PC's as they don't have to reinstall it for 5 years. These computers are around 5 years old currently running Windows XP. A point release helps a lot. Hope Linuxmint team can consider this as favour for speading us...
