    Linux Mint 15 will be named “Olivia” and should be available at the end of May 2013.

    Olivia is pronounced oh-LIV-ee-ah. It is of Latin origin and the meaning of Olivia is “olive tree”. The olive tree is a symbol of fruitfulness, beauty, and dignity.

    Linux Mint 15 “Olivia” will feature the following editions:

    Cinnamon
    MATE
    KDE
    Xfce

    I'm going to assume it will be based on 13.04

    Mint is nice and all, but unfortunately it lacks direct support to Ubuntu Software Center.

    Mint has an equivalent called Software Center, though not quite as nice as Ubuntu's.
    i use Synaptic to install stuff anyway.

    Ubuntu only seems to offer one desktop/windows manager 'out-of-the-box', unfortunately.
    unlike Mint who offers more choices.

    what i meant is that i don't think Xubuntu and Kubuntu are handled by the Ubuntu team directly.
    unless i am mistaken, which would not be the first time. ;)

    i tried Kubuntu a few months back but it was a no-go for me.

    i'll most likely try both Xubuntu and Kubuntu as well before making a final decision.

    Only Ubuntu is officially supported by Canonical.


    Kubuntu, Xubuntu and Lubuntu are now community-driven distributions.
