    Have you experienced any of the screen freezing issues on 17.3? that’s what drove me over to Ubuntu mate….

    When I became frustrated with Windows 10 I went distro shopping, determined to use Linux full-time at home instead of just playing in a VM once in awhile. Cinnamon was the most modern looking desktop, a lot of the other DE’s look dated, Mate looks good, but Cinnamon has more function, flexibility and looks better. Cinnamon works best on Mint. I’ve tried Cinnamon on Ubuntu and Debian, something’s missing and doesn’t feel the same as on Mint. All of my PC’s, laptops and even the netbooks are back in service with Mint. My wife can use it and it’s still Linux if I want to go deep on something.

      Well said Wayne, No desktop environment (as far as I can tell) works any better outside of the original distribution it was tailored for….. the experience is night and day with these DE’s in their native distro compared to when used with others.

      PS: I’ll be going back to Mint+CInnamon permanently pretty soon on one of my systems.
