The Linux Mint Team has recently announced that the name for the upcoming Linux Mint 15, which is scheduled for a spring release, is inspired by an olive tree. Linux Mint 15 will be named...

Olivia, pronounced oh-LIV-ee-ah, is the name of the Linux Mint 15 operating system which, as Clem Lefebvre explained, is penciled in for a May 2013 release. The word of Latin origin was chosen because the olive tree symbolizes fruitfulness, beauty, and dignity. Lefebvre added. There will be 4 Linux Mint 15 Olivia editions: Cinnamon, MATE, KDE, and Xfce.


In related news, the Linux Mint team had another announcement to make: the fact that mintBox Basic is available for sale at 20% off.

Developed in collaboration with CompuLab, company that’s been making embedded computer-on-modules for over 15 years, mintBox is the very first branded Mint device. Presented as one of the toughest computers on the market, the mintBox is a fit-PC3 unit no bigger than a DVD case that runs the Linux Mint OS. Plug it to a monitor, a keyboard, and a mouse and you’re set to start using Linux Mint.

There are two versions of the mintBox to choose from: the Basic version, recognizable by its standard casing, and the Pro version that stands out with its ribbed case. Both versions come with a 250GB HDD, 8 USB ports (4 in the back, 4 in the front), Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI port, and DVI adapter. The CPU, graphics card, and RAM make the difference between the Basic and Pro versions. mintBox Basic comes with an APU G-T40N 1.0 GHz dual core processor, Radeon HD 6290 – 9W graphics card, and 4GB of Ram. mintBox Pro comes with an APU G-T56N 1.65 GHz dual core processor, Radeon HD 6320 – 18W graphics card, and 8GB of RAM.

10% from all mintBox sales will go towards supporting the Linux Mint project.
