The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015):

MiNT (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. (http://orient.uw.edu.pl/~conradus/docs/mint.html). (1999-07-20)

Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary:

Mint (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.
Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856):
