web site : adding Mint's system requirements

Post by Vupocy2 » Fri Sep 11, 2015 2:50 am

I am surprise to not find any Mint's system requirements (ie : minimum CPU, minimum RAM).

I think that this could be something to add on the Download page (or somewhere else).

System requirements are listed on the announcement link you'll find on each download page.

Just out of curiosity, I went to look at the system requirements. It took me a bit of looking to find it. Click on the Download link (http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php), this will bring you to the 17.2 page. Under the image of the desktop, click on Read the release notes. This will take you to a page that shows the 4 different varieties of Mint (http://www.linuxmint.com/rel_rafaela.php). Click on the version you're interested in. I picked Cinnamon. This will take you to the release notes for 17.2 Cinnamon (http://www.linuxmint.com/rel_rafaela_cinnamon.php). Under the image of the desktop, click on Release announcement. This will take you to: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2863 where you can scroll down for the system requirements. Yes, they could have made it easier to find!

The short route is to click the Download link, click the edition you're interested in, and then click on the announcement link. Your way is the long way around :wink:
