Does Linux Mint 32-bit support PAE for both Cinnamon and MATE desktop environments?

As far as I can see, since Mint is based on Ubuntu, it will support whatever the standard Ubuntu kernel supports.

Thus Mint 14 is based on Ubuntu 12.10's kernel, which has PAE by default.

Also, PAE has nothing to do with the desktop environment.

+1 for mentioning it is kernel-only issue. – peterph Dec 1 '12 at 19:30
