Linux Mint 17.3 codenamed ‘Rosa’

The third and last 17.x point release will be Linux Mint 17.3 codename ‘Rosa’.

Rosa is a classic vintage Italian, Spanish and Portuguese name.

The meaning of the name Rosa is: Rose. Used as a sign of love and compassion, the rose is also the symbol of England.

In 1545, Ronsard writes one of the most famous poems in France. In “Mignonne, allons voir si la rose”, youth is ephemeral, beautiful but short-lived, just like a rose.

Linux Mint 17, 17.1 and 17.2 users will have the choice to upgrade, and that upgrade will be both easy and safe.
