Linux Mint 18 will have no new theme


There is less and less time for it to come out the new Linux Mint 18, a new version that will be based on Ubuntu 16.04. This new version will bring Cinnamon 3 as the default desktop, but not everything will be new. According to Clem, for this new Linux Mint 18, users will have a new desktop theme but it will not be installed by default on the desktop.

The new desktop theme is called Mint-Y, a desktop theme that will renew the interface and colors of Linux Mint 18So much so that Clem and his team have thought that users might get confused if they are newcomers.Thus the desktop theme of Linux Mint 18 will be by default the same as in version 17.3 and only in Linux Mint 18.1 will the theme be changed from the desktop theme to Mint-Y. This is good news, not for the fact that there is a new desktop theme but for the simple fact that if Clem cares about the desktop theme, it is because the new version is almost ready to go as stable with what that implies.

Linux Mint 18 will not have Mint-Y by default

Linux Mint 18 is the first version to match the LTS version, the first since Linux Mint and his team decided to change their developments and be based only on LTS distributions. On the other hand, Cinnamon 3 is also incorporated, a desktop that we can already know and test on our Ubuntu 16.04 distribution.

Personally, I've been using the new version of Cinnamon 3 for a couple of days, a version that has yet to mature a bit more, but as a production desktop, the desktop is totally stable. So possibly the new Linux Mint 18 Sarah is closer than ever to being on the street, but in this case care must be taken so that the case of malware does not occur of the latest version.

    It will be more of the same, it seems to me that the boys of Mint are resting on their laurels ...

    Well for my taste Cinnamon is by far the best desktop that has been made for Linux, it does not need too much changes, it is very good as it is. The only thing I don't like about Linux Mint is that it is out of date.

    Linux Mint was missing a new look, one of the things it was searching for was the horrible artistic design, the themes, icons and especially the official wallpapers are horrible, and this may seem silly to many, but A sleek and simple design goes a long way, especially if you use your computer frequently.
