For users in the United States, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain, Yahoo is now the default search engine. DuckDuckGo and Amazon already share revenue with the Mint project, but Yahoo is really the first major one to do so. Of course, anyone who wants to use a different search engine can easily install their choice as well.

5. Fresh Beauty

With the latest Mint-X and Mint-Z themes and better support for GTK3, Linux Mint 13 now includes a collection of beautiful background photographs from an Irish artist called "masterbutler".

It's not certain when, exactly, Linux Mint 13 will make its final debut. In the meantime, however, this release candidate for the free and open source operating system can be downloaded from the project's site.
