From 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.

From 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.
     

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

  MINT. The place designated by law, where money is coined by authority of the 
  government of the United States. 
       2. The mint was established by the Act of April 2, 1792, 1 Story's L. 
  U. S. 227, and located at Philadelphia, where, by virtue of sundry acts of 
  congress, it still remains. Act of April 24, 1800, 1 Story, 770; Act of 
  March 3, 1801, 1 Story, 816; Act of May 19, 1828, 4 Sharsw. cont. of Story's 
  L. U. S. 2120. 
       3. Below will be found a reference to the acts of congress now in force 
  in relation to the mint. Act of January 18, 1837, 4 Sharsw. cont. of Story, 
  L. U. S. 2120; Act of May 19, 1828, 4 Id. 2120; Act of May 3, 1835; Act of 
  February 13, 1837; Act of March 3, 1849; Act of March 3, 1851, s. 11. Vide
