Linux Mint 11 LXDE released
Clement Lefebvre has announced the release of the "LXDE" edition of Linux <a href="http://distrowatch.com/mint">Mint</a> 11: "The team is proud to announce the release of Linux Mint 11 LXDE. Linux Mint 11 LXDE comes with updated software and brings refinements and new features to make your desktop even more comfortable to use. The Software Manager - many improvements were made to its graphical interface, and the Software Manager now looks much more polished. Application screens were visually improved, not only in the way they look but also in their layout and the information they show. For instance, the Software Manager now runs a simulation prior to showing you the application, so when you look at it, it can tell you precisely which packages would be added or removed to your system, how much data would be downloaded and how much space would be taken on the hard drive."

This version of Linux Mint will be the basis for Linux MintPPC 11, developed by Jeroen Diederen. It is possible to install it on powerpc based Macs but it is not for the faint of heart (see <a href="http://www.mintppc.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=408">here</a>).
