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

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