Linux Mint is a community-driven Linux distribution based on Ubuntu (in turn based on Debian), bundled with a variety of free and open-source applications.[6][7] It can provide full out-of-the-box multimedia support for those who choose to include proprietary software such as multimedia codecs.[8]

The Linux Mint project was created by Clément Lefèbvre and is actively maintained by the Linux Mint Team and community.[9]
