[kwlug-disc] Linux Mint

So I could update to the latest version when the next comes out?

So far I'm really enjoying working with Linux Mint.  It's clean and sparse
- everything I need and nothing I don't.

As for the new version of Gnome coming with the next release, I guess
I'll just see what my options are at that point.

Cheers, Oksana
