How can Exactly may upgrade to the new version of the same os Linux, Without deleting the previous version or install the new version also?

For example

from linux mint mate  17.2 32 bit to linux mint mate 17.3, 32 bit

http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2920

 

by the way

why all the releases of os linux mint This feminine names?

What about the male honor?

The naming convention is just that, its just like OSX used the names of the big cats or Ubuntu uses the names of animals.

Or how Windows had a year naming scheme and now a bizarre numbering scheme

As for support the current Mint is supported to 2019 and the upgrade from 17.2 to 17.3 should just update as a normal standard update. its Like a XP service pack.

Now I am unsure if Mint will have an easy upgrade from 17 to 18 but at least you know its lifespan, its still got some years left.

Because for affirmative action

I did not find Linux distributions of Male names.

 

What does the word "lubuntu"?

I only know that the Ubuntu it's Humanity in humility.

Actually there are some.

There is Debian which had plenty of male names (characters from the movie Toy Story)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debian

 

Fedora used to have a naming scheme but is now on a boring as windows style naming scheme:

 

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/History_of_Fedora_release_names

 

The naming scheme is meaningless but still fun, mainly just codenames as opposed to random version numbers or code references

"Codenames on the 17.1 series were allowed to break the tradition. They won't start with a Q, as they should, but with an R instead. It wasn't easy to find a codename starting with Q initially, and with the move to LTS it’s getting harder and harder as the series might get a total of 4 or more releases. The first 17.x point release will be Linux Mint 17.1 codename Rebecca", says Clement Lefebvre.

Lefebvre further explains, "Rebecca is of Hebrew origin and its meaning is 'to bind'. The name was borne in the Bible by the wife of Isaac. It was also made famous since 1938 by the book from Daphne du Maurier entitled 'Rebecca' and adapted into a movie by Alfred Hitchcock in 1940".

As you can see, the Linux Mint team picks names of significance and does so respectfully. The wildly popular operating system is not named after women of sexual conquests or of well-endowment. Still, it might be appreciated by users to see a Linux Mint "Salvatore" or "Raymond" in the future. After all, men use the distro too, right?

Actually Ubuntu means "Humanity towards others" 

As for side distros the letter before the "Ubuntu" indicates the desktop

For example the K in Kubuntu stands for KDE

Is there some sort of problem with the feminine names of the releases? Please tell me about this male honor you speak of.

While giving releases a name is cool and good fun, I've always found it to be a bit problematic, because I can never remember the version number it corresponds to. Which is why I usually don't use the codenames when referring to them.

I hadn't notice that before.

 


What about the male honor?

 

I herby declare the next Linux Mint release (Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa) is to be unofficially codenamed "Robin". This way it follows the trend of female names (for those whom wish to keep up the tradition), but could also be seen as a male name (for any men feeling left out :P ), but most importantly it gives tribute to the passing of Robin Williams, can't believe that was last year, seems like not that long ago. :)

Wow, a year does pass by fast these days, Robin Williams was a great person in heart, and anyone who reads the link that hollowface proves it. Raised money for the homeless & other benefits, plus never forgot his friend in Christopher Reeves. 

 

Those are marks of a great hearted person, and while he did have his inner demons, not a single one of us can say we're perfect. Including myself. 

 

As to the reason why Clement Lefebvre named all of his distros after females, other than the soon coming 17.3, of which Robin is also used in female names, I don't know the specifics on that. Yet I do & will always remember the version that made me fall in love with Linux Mint was version 7, otherwise known & remembered as Gloria by me & others. At the time, Linux Mint was still an up & comer, yet a huge one & by then surely the folks at Canonical knew they had contention. 

 

In fact, to this day, still run the Gloria wallpaper on my computer, which was brought back by popular demand.
