Will Linux Mint 20.3 'Una' make 2022 the fabled 'Year of Linux on the Desktop?'

Will Linux Mint 20.3 make 2022 the fabled "Year of Linux on the Desktop?" Absolutely not. However, that won't stop some fans of the Ubuntu-based operating system from making that prediction. While it won't dethrone Windows anytime soon, the release of a stable Linux Mint 20.3 is imminent.

You see, today, the Linux Mint developers share that version 20.3 of the operating system will be released this week! Sadly, the devs missed the Christmas 2021 deadline they previously shared -- a major disappointment. Oh well, users simply had more time to play with the Beta release. At least the wait for Linux Mint 20.3 -- code-named "Una" -- will be over soon.

Clement Lefebvre, head developer, shares the following New Year message.


Happy New Year everyone!

Linux Mint 20.3 will be available this week, both as a stable release and as an upgrade. The ISO images are currently going through QA testing. We’ll make separate announcements for the upgrade and for the release as soon as they are available.

I’d like to thank all the people who tested the BETA and helped us identify bugs. Thanks to your feedback we went through 85 reports and were able to address many usability issues.

As always I’d like to thank all of you also who donate to our project and continue to support us financially. Many thanks for being there for us.

I hope you’ll enjoy our latest release and I wish you a very happy new year.

Do you think that Linux Mint 20.3 will make 2022 the fabled 'Year of Linux on the Desktop' or not? Please tell me in the comments below.
