Linux Mint 17.1 released
The final release of Linux Mint 17.1 is now available to download. You can opt for the Cinnamon or MATE versions of Linux Mint 17.1, depending on which desktop you prefer to use. MATE now has support for the Compiz window manager, and Cinnamon has had numerous improvements including performance tweaks and additional polish.
The Linux Mint site has details about the addition of Compiz in Linux Mint 17.1 MATE:
Linux Mint 17.1 MATE Edition comes with two window managers installed and configured by default:
Marco (MATE’s very own window manager, simple, fast and very stable).
Compiz (an advanced compositing window manager which can do wonders if your hardware supports it).
