Linux Mint 17.3 OEM images available

Written by Clem on December 13th, 2015

The following OEM installation images are now available:

Reminder: OEM images are for computer vendors and manufacturers. They allow Linux Mint to be “pre-installed” on a machine which is then used by another person than the one who performed the installation. After an OEM installation, the computer is set in such a way that the next reboot features a small setup screen where the new user/customer has the ability to choose his/her username, password, keyboard layout and locale.

Note: “No-codecs” ISOs are also available for magazines and distributors at http://www.linuxmint.com/release.php?id=26
