I actually haven't done anything yet.. planning on doing clean install. Just wondering how to update to LM17 in half a year.

I downloaded this one:
linuxmint-16-cinnamon-dvd-64bit.iso
http://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/linuxmint.com/stable/16/

Should I have downloaded this one:
Petra Cinnamon Edition amd64 (build #201311261702)
http://community.linuxmint.com/iso/view/250
Even though it says amd it runs on intel as well. Linux mint just calls 64bit amd64bit for whatever reason.
Hi, Incentive I.C,

As I recall, Intel uses an AMD component design and this was the version recommended for LM15, on this computer. Thus my confusion.
Thank you.

Thanks. I assume i am already running the stable. when i go to the welcome screen i get( Linux Mint 16 "petra") No RC(IDK if clem did some last minute bug fixes). But my preferences.d folder is empty.
The best way to learn from it is break it OS's (is there a plural for OS?) included.

I'm experiencing a similar issue. The menus "All Applications", "Preferences" and "Administration" are empty. Plain installation in a Virtualbox 4.3.4r91027.
