Word posted on Slashdot today is that Linux Mint 18 will ship without Multimedia support (https://linux.slashdot.org/story/16/...imedia-support). While details are provided on how to install multimedia support when installing Mint, I suspect that there are others like myself that like the ability to run Linux from a Live disc rather than being required to install it. Knoppix has let me down in this area for years, and now the last Live DVD that I'm aware of that still has native multimedia support is losing it. So if you use a live disc and want multimedia support, or just think that some day in the future it might come in handy, I suggest that you grab a copy of one or more of the Linux Mint 17.x ISO files while you still can.
