Congratulations to the entire Linux Mint Team, excellent version, now waiting for the KDE version. Too bad the little time support, but unfortunately this does not depend to you. Congratulations Linux Mint Team !!!!

Well done! I haven't updated yet (14) but will do at some point.

I'm worried the lack of Wubi will put some potential users off (well it will let's face it) and understand the reasons why it was dropped. I hope it can also be fixed one day too as so many people fear repartitioning their hard drives "just in case" which is crazy i know.

Anyway enough of that, well done again! Great job :D

What do you mean ? We can't intsall dual boot ?

I need to keep 7 because I have several tool with no Linux alternative,

I am running 16 from my pendrive and would be disappointed if I can't install it on my HD.

To the entire Linux Mint Team,

Thank you very much for all of your efforts. The installation of Linux Mint 16 64-bit Mate Edition from the Live DVD went very well for me. I installed it yesterday and am using it now. :D

You can still dual boot that's fine, sorry for the confusion, you cannot however install Linux Mint "within Windows" like before. This was a sugar coated way of letting fledgling users install the OS but if they didn't like it simply go to "Add/Remove Programs - Linux Mint - Remove". Now they will have to entertain using grub etc which especially terrifies noobs etc.

Not really because a new LinuxMint will be available within 30 days.
