1 min


Linux Mint 20 is codenamed “Ulyana” and to be released only in 64 bit. Here’s all you need to know.

> We keep this post updated as we move closer to the final release.

The major change we see in Linux Mint 20 is the dropping of 32-bit support officially and it is available as the 64-bit version only.

That means the older computers will not be able to run the latest Linux Mint. But if you are having an older system setup running Linux 18.x, 19.x – they will continue to run but will not be getting security and other updates when support ends.

Linux Mint 20 is based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and to be available as three standard desktop flavors: MATE, Cinnamon, and XFCE.

The Cinnamon desktop environment in Linux Mint 20 features much-needed improvements. Latest Cinnamon 4.6 is available with built-in fractional scaling support, improved display settings with the option to choose monitor frequency.

The default Nemo file manager in Cinnamon 4.6 sees performance improvements for slower HDD and heavy I/O operation by improving thumbnail processing.

The Linux Mint 20 – on the look-and-feel side guarantees two new color schemes – Mint-Y – Pink (!!) and Aqua. This is how the Pink theme looks.
