The MATE and Cinnamon editions of Linux Mint 17 "Qiana" have now been officially announced.
After noting yesterday there were Linux Mint 17 ISOs released
but without any official release announcement, the proper communication has came out today to officially announce Linux Mint 17 as stable before ending out May.
There is Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon
and Linux Mint 17 MATE
as the two desktop options right now for this popular Linux distribution based upon Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. See our earlier Linux Mint 17
coverage that includes a six-way desktop comparison on Linux Mint 17
and Linux Mint 13 to Linux Mint 17 benchmarks
