Linux Mint 13 “Maya”

Ny är den senaste versionen av Linux Mint, som jag skrev om nyss, släppt. Det är en LTS-version och kommer att supportas till april 2017.

The team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 13 “Maya”.

Available in two editions, Linux Mint 13 features the choice between a productive, stable and mature MATE 1.2 desktop and the brand new modern-looking and exciting Cinnamon 1.4. These two desktops are among the best available, they’re perfectly integrated within Linux Mint and represent great alternatives to Gnome 2 users. Linux Mint 13 is also an LTS (Long Term Support) release and it will be supported until April 2017.

OEM images:

Manufacturers can pre-install Linux Mint on their computers using the OEM installation images. These images will be made available next week, for both the MATE and Cinnamon edition in 64-bit at the following address:

700MB CD images:

Because of the size of the content, and the fact that a vast majority of systems nowadays can either boot from DVDs or from USB, Linux Mint no longer provides images which fit in 700MB CDs. It is however possible and easy to to modify ISO images. By removing packages such as Java, Mono, LibreOffice, Gimp..etc.. Linux Mint ISOs can be made to fit within 700MB. For instructions on how to remaster the Linux Mint ISOs, please read the following tutorial:

Konkret IT-politik i kommunerna

Som kommunpolitiker finns det naturligtvis massor av olika frågor att sätta sig in i. IT-frågorna hamnar lätt i skymundan eftersom de dels är komplicerade och dels sällan genererar folkstormar eller mediedrev i lokalpressen.

Syftet med denna sida är att underlätta bildandet av och arbetet i ett partipolitiskt obundet nätverk av politiker och experter med syftet att underlätta kloka beslut i IT-frågor. Jag hoppas att vi ska kunna ge konkreta råd om öppna standarder, öppen källkod, kommunal e-förvaltning och hur IT kan stödja det demokratiska arbetet.
