Description: "The USB Image Writer and the USB Stick Formatter now recognize a wider variety of USB sticks. They also feature improvements in terms of partitions alignment, boot flags. Sticks are better described and the tools also now use less CPU than they did before. LibreOffice was upgraded to version 4.4.3. HPLIP was upgraded to version 3.15.2, for more HP printers to be recognized and supported. HAL was reintroduced to support DRM playback in Adobe Flash (note that this helps with certain video websites, but not all of them, a tutorial was written to workaround other DRM/Flash issues). In the repositories, Inkscape was upgraded to version 0.91."

Pros: Customization of the KDE Desktop, compatibility with a majority of the packages
Cons: ability to use Software-Center from Ubuntu.



Switched to Rafaela to get a sample of newest features and stability. Wound up staying with it for the past 2 weeks, awaiting Kubuntu's distro. Love all the sleek features of Mint that I didn't expect. Especially compatibility with QT5.

Pros: works perfectly.
Cons: Have not noticed any...


My brother brought over his old HP Laptop loaded with Windows 7.
It was useless. It was painfully slow and could not even play a dvd. I loaded it with Linux Mint 18 and I am really impressed. I just added VLC and Handbreak and it works like a new laptop.
While my interest was in loading Debian to this Desktop, I am currently minty fresh.
