Linux Mint system requirements for all versions and editions

Linux Mint is one of the lightest yet powerful and easy to use free Linux distributions, which is based on Debian and Ubuntu and works out-of-the-box and provides full multimedia support too. Moreover, it has a helpful community, which is really supportive even if you’re a beginner working with Linux for the first time.

If you’re looking to switch from your current OS to a lighter Linux distribution or want to set up Linux Mint on a secondary PC and try it out, here are the system requirements for Linux Mint 3 Cindy through Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia, as well as the official download links for all the versions.

The 64-bit ISO for Linux Mint can boot with BIOS or UEFI while the 32-bit ISO can only boot with BIOS. If you bought your PC after 2007, most probably it’s powered by a 64-bit processor, so download the 64-bit version of Mint Cinnamon.
