  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
    (MinT  is  not  TOS  -  a  {recursive  acronym})  A 
  freeware,  {open  source  operating  system}  for  the  {Atari  ST} 
  range  of  computers.  MiNT  was  originally  based  on  a  {port}  of 
  {BSD}  to  {Atari  ST}  computers  by  Eric  R.  Smith.  MiNT  gave  the 
  Atari  access  to  BSD's  many  network  applications.  A  short 
  (1992-94)  romance  between  MiNT  and  {Atari}  Corp.,  who  decided 
  to  convert  the  system  to  the  {MultiTOS}  {kernel},  produced  a 
  unique  TOS/Unix  hybrid,  which  provides  simultaneous  access  to 
  both  {GEM}  and  BSD  application  libraries. 
  Since  MiNT  is  MultiTOS's  kernel,  it  has  kept  all  the  features 
  described  above  and  if  an  {AES}  replacement  is  installed,  it 
  can  show  you  a  new  face  of  MultiTOS.  Unlike  MultiTOS  however, 
  MiNT  is  based  on  a  different  {file  system},  that  is  faster  and 
  more  flexible  than  TOS's.  Furthermore,  thanks  to  the  network 
  support,  MiNT  allows  an  Atari  to  be  an  {Internet}  {server} 
  that  can  still  run  GEM  and  TOS  applications!  This  has  won 
  MiNT  many  devotees  ("MiNTquisitors"),  making  it  the  main 
  competitor  for  {ASH}'s  {MagiC}. 
  Unlike  {Linux},  MiNT  can  run  on  a  {Motorola  68000}  with  no 
  {FPU}.  It  needs  at  least  4  MB  of  RAM,  more  to  run  multiuser 
  or  to  run  GEM  applications  at  the  same  time. 
  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
  {Mint  Is  Not  TRAC} 
  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
  (Gr.  heduosmon  i.e.,  "having  a  sweet  smell"),  one  of  the  garden 
  herbs  of  which  the  Pharisees  paid  tithes  (Matt.  23:23;  Luke 
  11:42).  It  belongs  to  the  labiate  family  of  plants.  The  species 
  most  common  in  Syria  is  the  Mentha  sylvestris,  the  wild  mint, 
  which  grows  much  larger  than  the  garden  mint  (M.  sativa).  It  was 
  much  used  in  domestic  economy  as  a  condiment,  and  also  as  a 
  medicine.  The  paying  of  tithes  of  mint  was  in  accordance  with 
  the  Mosiac  law  (Deut.  14:22),  but  the  error  of  the  Pharisees  lay 
  in  their  being  more  careful  about  this  little  matter  of  the  mint 
  than  about  weightier  matters.
