I like Qiana, very cool. Guess this is a silly question since LMDE is a rolling release. But can't it have a code name too? Like "The Bad Boy on the Block"? In case you can't tell I'm partial to it.

Of course fresh install.
You have to suffer a little bit , if not it's not Linux.

I'm eagerly awaiting this, and will then do a fresh install on several of my computers. Any idea of when the release date will be? Thank you Clem.

Keep up the good work, thanks! Mint is consistently the most reliable distro and my M16 install has a smaller footprint than Arch or Manjaro with the same desktop (fluxbox).

wikipedia:
"Qiana is a silky nylon fiber developed in 1962 at the DuPont Experimental Station by Stanley Brooke Speck. The fiber was christened Qiana when introduced by DuPont in 1968. [1] Initially intended for high-end fashions, it became a popular material in the 1970s for faux-silk men's shirts, displaying bold patterns. The shirts were generally cut tight and included wide collars to fit over the collars of the double-knit suit coats which were worn popularly to discos."
Please edit your original post title to include [SOLVED] if/when it is solved!
Your data and OS are backed up....right?
Mint 19.1 Xfce/fluxbox
Manjaro openbox/fluxbox

Hi,

I'm waiting for Linux Mint 17, but I have a question.

Do you think that Nvidia-prime will be supported in Linux Mint 17 (for Optimus technology) ?

Thanks.

Thanks for all the efforts!
