Linux Mint 16 Petra Cinnamon Desktop screenshot preview

Linux Mint 16, code-named Petra, will be the next stable edition of Linux Mint, a desktop distribution based on Ubuntu Desktop. It could be released sometime this month or early next month (December).

This distribution’s release track record suggests that Linux Mint 16 will be released less than two weeks from today. And when that happens, it will be the first stable edition of Linux Mint with Cinnamon 2.0 desktop pre-installed.

While we await that release, here are a few screen shots from a test installation of the first and last pre-stable edition.

From the login screen, you’ll notice a few of the new improvements that come with Cinnamon 2.0. This is what it looks like with just one user account in the system.
