Linux Mint is a community-driven Linux distribution based on Ubuntu or Debian, and bundled with a variety of free and open-source applications.[5][6] It can provide full out-of-the-box multimedia support for those who choose (by ticking one box during its installation process) to include proprietary software such as multimedia codecs.[7]

The Linux Mint project was created by Clément Lefèbvre, and is actively maintained by the Linux Mint Team and community.[8]
