Agreed with kaixi.

Personally, I think Hanna is an extremely ugly name (no offense people named Hanna, I'm sorry).

I agree to Helena but i think that 'H' and 'I' are hard for girl's names, so mint 9 will also be hard (especially for a name ending in a) :D

Hi,

No problem - Linux Mint called only by numbers.

I always call Linux Mint 5 "Elyssa" - Linux Mint 6 "Felicia" - Linux Mint 7 "Gloria"

Helena - Isadora - Julia - Laura

I do appreciate these names posted by me above.

I really got a girl on every corner - LOL...LOL

Best

Linux Mint's version number scheme is confusing (number doesn't hint a timeline like 9.04). Also it has the inconvenience of a "runaway" effects. By 2015, we'll be looking at LinuxMint 20.

Overall I prefer the Ubuntu style version number. The codename may be Ok for people handling release but when there are many names it becomes hard to keep track. I entered in the Linux world in 2008, by end of 2009, there are already EIGHT names to remember (4 from Ubuntu and 4 from Linux Mint). And that is only 2 years. Personally I have difficulty to relate that Heroin Hashish means April 2008. And letter H means Linux Mint 8 which means "shortly after October 2009". This is so confusing, but overall, it's a minor inconvenience.

As Mint is based on Ubuntu and follow the same release cycle. What is the problem of naming the next coming release Mint 9.10 ?

I don't think the version number is meant to have any meaning other than which version of the OS it is. Linux Mint 8 isn't "shortly after October 2009," it's the 8th version of the Linux Mint operating system. Adding names to the different versions is just a fun and quirky way of keeping things interesting. That's my view of the whole situation anyway :)

Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
When a problem is solved, please add [SOLVED] to your thread title.
