Linux Mint x64 editions

Postby PolarW » Sat Feb 16, 2013 4:34 am

What's the latest Mint x64 edition?
I've downloaded Mint 8, but I would really like to test the newest versions.
The CPU of my computer is an intel core i5 and the latest Linux Mint versions
don't run on it. Does anybody know if I can get them from somewhere? Or are they
even coming.
Linux Mint is my favorite distro, so I would really like to try the newest

Do you know any other cool linux distros that have x64 editions?
Please, I need Linux :-D

Re: Linux Mint x64 editions

Postby cwsnyder » Sat Feb 16, 2013 4:45 am has the links for Mint 14 32 and 64 bit editions. The Intel Core i5 processor is fully supported by Mint, but your other devices on your motherboard may not be fully supported, and if not supported by Mint, may not be supported by any of the Debian derived distros.

Mint 8 is definitely past its support date, but Mint 13 will be supported until April 2017. See the documentation here:

Mint 13 can be downloaded here:
LMDE Mate 64-bit, LM17.3 Cinnamon 64-bit
Debian Mate 64-bit, Xubuntu xenial 64-bit, Ubuntu-Mate 14.04 64-bit, Antergos Xfce 64-bit, PCLinuxOS Mate 64-bit
