I had no problems installing the Cinnamon version of Linux Mint 16, but you may want peruse the ZDNet article if you've had some problems or just want some idea of what to expect before you do your own install.

WordPress 3.8 released

The latest version of WordPress is out.

Version 3.8 of WordPress, named “Parker” in honor of Charlie Parker, bebop innovator, is available for download or update in your WordPress dashboard. We hope you’ll think this is the most beautiful update yet.

WordPress has gotten a facelift. 3.8 brings a fresh new look to the entire admin dashboard. Gone are overbearing gradients and dozens of shades of grey — bring on a bigger, bolder, more colorful design!

More at WordPress

I upgraded all five of my blogs to WordPress 3.8 and had no problems. Be sure you back everything up though before doing an upgrade. It never hurts to be careful, better safe than sorry.

What's your take on all this? Tell me in the comments below.
