Linux Mint 20.1 Ulyssa is a reality.
Linux Mint is a popular Linux distribution based on Ubuntu Linux and Debian. A few days ago, the version with the number 20.1 was released, which can enjoy long support, until 2025. You can download the Mint in three versions of working environments: Xfce 4.14, Mate 1.24 a Cinnamon 4.8. All are composed on the above-mentioned Ubuntu Linux and use the kernel in version 5.4.
In all versions, you will find the pre-installed Internet browser Firefox in version 84, but fans of Chromium, which is located in the distribution repositories, will also be pleased. Unfortunately, the Thunderbird email client is in the older version 68.10. An older version of LibreOffice also freezes a bit, but if you control the command line, you can update it to the latest version thanks to PPA.
The system has received a novelty in the form of Favorite Files, ie those you often use will be marked with an asterisk and thus you will get quick access to them within the entire system. Mint also thought about IPTV fans and built in direct support of this service in the form of the Hypnotix application, which should offer several thousand stations from all over the world (after installation, I will check if there are any Slovak ones). For classic movie playback, you will use the Celluloid player, which you can replace with the proven VLC player, which is also included in the distribution repositories.
Mint also got a nice news, where you can add your favorite website as a “standalone” application. There, of course, you can choose which browser will open the page for you.
