Linux Mint 12 KDE Lisa’ review with screenshots

Linux Mint 12 KDE is very easy to use and glossy at graphics appeal. Windows users, moving to Linux will find to be pleasantly simple using Linux Mint KDE. This release is based on Kubuntu 11.10. Linux Mint is a developing Linux distribution and for past some releases, Linux Mint has taken KDE, LXDE, Xfce based versions of Linux Mint as official releases. Recently, I got opportunity to get my hands on its latest KDE edition (Linux Mint 12 KDE version). I was little bore of my Ubuntu 11.10 and wanted to try something new. I thought to give KDE a try, as I’ve not used KDE for last seven months. Some time before, Blue Systems sponsored Linux Mint to work in collaboration with Netrunner (a KDE based Linux distro) to develop KDE with innovation. I must say that they’re working really good, Linux Mint 12 KDE is awesome (with small exceptions).
