Linux Mint

Linux Mint

Linux Mint is an application that was designed to serve as a GNU or Linux system, and the common set of features that are integrated into many GNU and Linux system versions are also implemented into this OS distribution. Certain functionalities have been added to Linux Mint in order to provide users with more customization options and easier to navigate or simpler to operate panels and feature OS sections. Linux Mint has also been implemented with wider compatibility support for new Linux applications. Some users install Linux Mint or another GNU/Linux distribution version in their computers as an alternative system, since Microsoft Windows is already installed and selected as their primary system in the same machine, because this allows them to access different applications that only work with either Microsoft Windows platforms, or GNU/Linux distributions.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .mint files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .mint. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
