Re: Mint 16 minimum system requirements?

I think you need at least dual core CPU and 1 GB RAM . If you are used onboard VGA : intel G31 or newer .
I didn't use cinnamon now, but in the past ( LM13 ) i used it with intel 945 graphic and it works ( i don't know with cinnamon 2.0)

Vanilla linux kernel itself including binary blobs. Distro like Trisquel use a version of the Linux kernel with the non-free code (binary blobs) removed .
