Another reason to like Mint 19, I guess.   Happy Eyes

Mint 19 beta is now out. The gold version should be out after the 18th.

RE: Linux: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS vs. Mint 19
Thanks for the heads-up, Red.

I decided to stick with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and I'm using the Cinnamon desktop.  So far I'm very pleased with it.  Just couldn't wait until Mint came out since I had to get my build completed and running for my work.

I'm just wondering what advantages Mint has over Ubuntu at this point in time... Thinking-about   I know it doesn't "phone home", but I'm pretty sure I have that "feature" turned off in Ubuntu anyway.

  • New welcome screen
  • Timeshift backup tool is now integrated with Update Manager
  • Update Manager doesn’t show update level by default
  • Revamped software manager with faster search
  • You can configure the maximum volume anywhere between 0 and 150
  • PDF Editor got improvements with custom thumbnails size and recently viewed documents
  • File Manager has faster search
  • Mint 19 overall has faster experience thanks to the changes made to improve application load time
  • Improved HiDPI support
  • No KDE Edition

RE: Linux: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS vs. Mint 19
I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 and just installed Cinnamon 3.8 about a week ago.  Love Cinnamon 3.8, seems stable and cool to use with many nice features.

The only thing I'm noticing is that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS is a bit slower in app start-up than when I was running 16.04 LTS (and that's on a newer PC with faster processor and more RAM)

Not a deal-killer, but it's noticeably slower.  Once apps are running, everything is A-OK, but just takes a bit to get 'em goin'.

Probably would have gone with Mint 19, but I needed to get my new box up and running and didn't want to wait the additional 3 weeks without having my new PC up and running.

I've used Xubuntu for years with good luck. It's basically stripped down Ubuntu with the Xfce DE. Runs smooth as butter without the added bloat. Cinnamon and MATE are pretty sweet though.
