9. More software available
Linux Mint 5 Elyssa is supported by CNR.com which features commercial services and applications which are not available via the traditional channels.
The Software Portal introduced in Linux Mint 4.0 Daryna is receiving more focus as it represents the easiest way to install applications. About 10 times more applications will be made available for Linux Mint 5 Elyssa.
The way we handle repositories has changed and we're now in a position to take advantage of the sections introduced in Linux Mint 4.0 Daryna. For instance, we will actively import packages within the "import" section. The community is also allowed to provide packages for the distribution which are added to the "community" section (Note: The community section is commented out by default in /etc/apt/sources.list).
This was on the Mint website. I'd like to know, that how can I get those those features commercial services and applications ?
Are they added in Synaptic? Also, what is Software Portal? Is it the same as Synaptic?2
