Hello there all, Might be building another pc soonish, just wondering after a look around the forum and internet, I need to clarify.

Re: Linux Mint 18 “Sarah” Cinnamon released!

Thank you all for the information, I shall read this and see if I can have success. I download from my ISP so the mirror is trusted I am thinking though that it might be prudent to wait for 18.1 so that this release may mature somewhat, with the reported problems with the ubuntu base it makes sense ...

Anyway I was able to work out that after adding the new panel it was a job to add the menu and calenda...

Re: THE MINT CAFE

Yes thank you, I did change my password. Yes I did notice the change in the board.
Was just wondering about the colour as I can change colour on other boards. Anyway no big deal maybe further down the track they can give options for colour.
Thank you regards beachgardener.
