Clement Lefebvre proudly announced a minutes ago, June 1st, the immediate availability for download of the OEM installation images of the recently released Linux Mint 13 operating system.
Dubbed Maya and powered by Linux kernel 3.2, Linux Mint 13 was released a week ago and it is based on Canonical’s Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) operating system.
Linux Mint 13 comes in two editions, with the MATE and Cinnamon desktop environments. Being based on an LTS (Long Term Support) release, Linux Mint 13 is supported for five years with security updates and patches.
"OEM images are for computer vendors and manufacturers. They allow Linux Mint to be “pre-installed” on a machine which is then used by another person than the one who performed the installation."
"After an OEM installation, the computer is set in such a way that the next reboot features a small setup screen where the new user/customer has the ability to choose his/her username, password, keyboard layout and locale," said Clement Lefebvre in the official blog announcement.
Linux Mint 13 (Maya) is distributed as Live DVD ISO images with separate editions of MATE and Cinnamon desktop environments, for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. The OEM images of Linux Mint 13 are only for the 64-bit architecture.
No-codecs ISO images of aforementioned editions are also available for download for USA, Japan and users from countries where distributing media codecs is a legal issue.
