Linux Mint does it for the diehard geek

What you need to know:

  • The desktop now gets “Desklets”, which are really widgets that make certain bits of information available to you in a much easier manner. These include a system monitor for keeping an eye on the computer’s performance, a frame that supports pictures, slideshows, and videos, and even a terminal widget that gives you access to the command line. If you are a command line aficionado, this will seem a tad like heaven.

My confession is simple: Linux has been a part of my life for over 10 years. Granted, Linux never was a cup of tea for everyone but the curious. Once you got it to work right, it was the closest thing you got to perfection.
