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. It can provide full out-of-the-box multimedia support for those who choose to include proprietary software such as multimedia codecs.
The Linux Mint project was created by Clément Lefèbvre and is actively maintained by the Linux Mint Team and community.
