Linux Top 3: Linux Mint Olivia, Fedora 19's Cat and Ubuntu's Mission
Accomplished Moment

June 3, 2013
By Sean Michael Kerner

Since the beginning the Linux desktop era, users and pundits have been
asking when the year of the Linux desktop would be here. This past week
saw three different answers to that question with the release of Linux
Mint 15, Fedora 19 beta and the closing Ubuntu bug #1.
1) Linux Mint 15 Olivia

After much anticipation the official final release of Linux Mint 15
debuted last week.

"Linux Mint 15 is the most ambitious release since the start of the
project," Mint founder, Celment Lefebvre wrote in his release
announcement. "MATE 1.6 is greatly improved and Cinnamon 1.8 offers a
ton of new features, including a screensaver and a unified control
center."

With Cinnamon 1.8 in particular there has been a lot of work done to
improve the Linux desktop user interface.

"Cinnamon 1.8 represents 7 months of development and 1,075 commits. It
features a lot of bug fixes but also brand new features and many
improvements," Linux Mint 15's What's New page states.
2) Fedora 19 Beta

Fedora is one of the most popular Linux distros around, primarily though
due to its server heritage. With Fedora 19 the browser is making new
inroad to try and court developers, makers and desktop users alike

"Developer's Assistant is great for those new to development or even new
to Linux, this tool helps you to get started on a code project with
templates, samples, and toolchains for the languages of your choice,"
the Fedora 19 Beta release announcement states. "Bonus: It lets you
publish directly to GitHub."

On the desktop side, GNOME 3.8 as well KDE 4.10 top the list of
supported interfaces. Though others include LXDE and even MATE are
supported with Fedora 19 as well.
3) Ubuntu Bug #1

With Linux Mint 15 and the Fedora 19 beta, the best of the Linux Planet
is on display for desktop users. They both represent alternatives to
Microsoft's desktop dominance, which was identified back in 2004 by
Ubuntu Linux founder Mark Shuttleworth as bug #1.

It's a bug that has now been closed. Not because Ubuntu (or any other
desktop distribution) has displaced Microsoft, but rather because the
game has changed.

"Android may not be my or your first choice of Linux, but it is without
doubt an open source platform that offers both practical and economic
benefits to users and industry. So we have both competition, and good
representation for open source, in personal computing," Shuttleworth
said.
