Linux Mint 17 codenamed “Qiana”

Linux Mint 17 will be named “Qiana” and should be available at the end of May 2014.
Qiana is pronounced kee-AHN-ah. It was the name of a fashion silk-like material, introduced in the 1970s and popular in the disco-era, when it was made into loud, shiny shirts with pointy collars.  The feminine name is of American origin, and its meaning is “silky”.
In some languages Qiana also means ‘singers’, ‘light’ or ‘deity’.
Linux Mint 17 “Qiana” will feature the following editions:
  • Cinnamon
  • MATE
  • KDE
  • Xfce
More so than a vibrant and extravagant style of the 1970s, we’ll be aiming for a silky smooth release.
