Boxing Helena – Linux Mint Releases Version 8

Yesterday, the team behind Linux Mint pushed out the latest version of their Linux-based operating system. Linux Mint 8, codenamed “Helena,” is available for download as a live CD (the “Main” edition) or as a live DVD (the “Universal” edition, which includes support for quite a few different languages, but does not include pre-installed codecs for protected formats like commercial DVD movies) from the Linux Mint Web site. You can also view a list of the new items and features in Linux Mint 8.

Unfortunately, this is only the 32-bit Gnome version of the system, so those of you looking for the 64-bit version (like me) or looking for a different desktop manager (KDE, XFCE, etc.) will have to wait a while longer before those upgrades are available.
