Besides you will find the 64-bit and 32-bit version to download and test, although as we always say, we recommend using a virtual machine to test this new version of Linux Mint, as it is still an unstable version.
Linux Mint 18 will bring as a novelty the new 4.4 kernel of Ubuntu 16.04
Linux Mint 18 is the first version of Linux Mint based on Ubuntu 16.04, A version that will be a big leap for Linux Mint users since months ago Clem decided to base their projects on LTS versions and not normal versions of Ubuntu.
However, as we said in previous articles, Clem and his team want to turn Linux Mint into a stable and fast operating system, so the user does not have to wait to load or run certain programs. In Linux Mint 18 is expected to the operating system is faster than normal as well as having a highly efficient and fast desktop. The tests performed seem to indicate that these results will be so, but it is also true that many users have complained about the problems created.
