The distro will be released sometime in November 2012
Clement Lefebvre, father of the Linux Mint project, proudly announced a few minutes ago, August 24th, that the codename for the upcoming Linux Mint 14 operating system will be Nadia.Linux Mint 14 (Nadia) will be available for download at the end of November 2012, and it will be shipped with separate MATE, Cinnamon, KDE and Xfce editions. However, it has not yet been decided which desktop environment will be the default for Linux Mint 14.
The developer says that Nadia, Linux Mint 14, will be compatible with Maya, Linux Mint 13. The distro will probably be based on Canonical's upcoming Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) operating system, due for release on late October.
"Linux Mint 14 will be named "Nadia" and should be available at the end of November 2012. In Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars Trilogy, Nadezhda “Nadia” Chernyshevski is Maya’s best friend," explained the Linux Mint developer.
"Nadia is pronounced NAH-d’-yah. It is the English form of Nadya, which itself is the pet form of Nadezhda and is Russian for "hope". It’s also a variant of Nadiyya which, in Arabic, means "moist, tender, delicate"," Clement Lefebvre in the blog announcement.
As usual, Linux Mint 14 will be supported on both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. It will feature Firefox 16, Thunderbird 16, Linux kernel 3.5, and many more.
