I am preparing to install Mint in my machine and wondering whether the latest edition of Mint(i.e Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca) ships with GNOME 3.16?

Linux Mint 17.1 only "ships" with Cinnamon, MATE, KDE and Xfce, but you can install GNOME afterwards.

  • Do all of them will be available in each copy of Mint?

  • @RogUE From what I know, there will be only one window manager included in each .iso image, but the rest are available from repository.

  • Sounds a little bad.
