As of 2016 the Linux Mint ISO does not come with the multimedia codecs as default.

You can however choose to install them by ticking a box during the installation or from the menu after the installation.
  
"Arch does not 'split' their packages into \"-dev\" and \"-common\" as Debian does, therefore, Arch repositories will seem much smaller."  I'm having a hard time understanding this bit.  Looking at [http://packages.debian.org/stable/python/ the debian repos], I see some packages have a "-dev" suffix and some have a "-common" suffix, but rarely are the two suffixes both present with the same prefix.  --[[User:Johniv|Johniv]] 03:58, 3 March 2010 (EST)

Multimedia codecs in Linux Mint optional

Perhaps the text on Linux Mint needs a bit clarification. As of 2016 the Linux Mint ISO does not come with the multimedia codecs as default. You can however choose to install them by ticking a box during the installation or from the menu after the installation.

openSuSE has a rolling release and you should wanna add back

openSuSE has 2 editions of its official releases, rolling Tumbleweed, like Arch aiming to be bleeding-edged, you should have understood Tumbleweed if already understanding Arch;
but also non-rolling Leap, unlike Arch and like Fedora, with a release per 2/3 to 3/4 years being supported for a year plus few weeks.Hd scania (talk) 05:58, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
