Linux Mint aims to produce an elegant, up to date and comfortable GNU/Linux desktop based on Ubuntu. It started out as a customized version of Ubuntu, but the project now develops many of its own tools and provides alternative desktops (MATE and Cinnamon). It is compatible with Ubuntu repositories. Linux Mint 5 "Elyssa" was released June 8, 2008 and was supported until April 25, 2011. Elyssa was also available in the XFCE Community Edition (CE), KDE CE, Fluxbox CE and x64 (for AMD64). The Mint project decided to track only Ubuntu LTS releases, starting with v17 "Qiana".

Official releases come with MATE or Cinnamon and are joined by Xfce and KDE community editions. Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) follows Debian testing, smoothing out some of the rougher edges along the way. LMDE 201009 was released September 7, 2010. LMDE 2 "Betsy" was released April 10, 2015, in MATE and Cinnamon editions. Fresh ISOs of LMDE 2 were released March 13, 2017. The Ubuntu 14.04-based Linux Mint 17.x series will be supported until 2019. The series includes 17 "Qiana" (released May 31, 2014), 17.1 "Rebecca" (released November 29, 2014), 17.2 "Rafaela" (released June 30, 2015), and 17.3 "Rosa" (released December 4, 2015).

The Ubuntu 16.04-based Linux Mint 18.x series will be supported until 2021. The series includes 18 "Sarah" (released June 30, 2016), 18.1 "Serena" (released December 16, 2016), 18.2 "Sonya" (released July 2, 2017), and 18.3 "Sylvia" (released November 27, 2017). The Ubuntu 18.04-based Linux Mint 19.x series will be supported until 2023. The series starts with 19 "Tara" (released June 29, 2018).
