Mint 16 RC is out

I have installed Mint Mate 16 (Petra) in a virtual partition. It has been out since a few days and the performance is really impressive.

You can download it from here. For the setup I have made a series of video tutorials that you can get from here. Download the PDF from that site. I gives you all the controls to access the tutorials.

I run Mate 16 in a virtual partition and the below video shopws you the boot and shutdown times.
