  • Update from my last post. Yesterday I loaded MInt 19 XFCE on a 2009 iMac. What was nice was the Mint 19 had the driver for the Mac's wireless. It is one of the older legacy Broadcom drivers that earlier versions did not support. In the past I would have to go to Broadcom and download the driver and then do an install.

    Also under "Appearance" I used the Mint-Y-Aqua for icons. I liked the icons. The edges at the corners were rounded and not a sharp 90 degrees. Gives more of a Macintosh look.

  • Been happy with MInt 19 XFCE. What surprised me it had the Brother Laser Printer Driver. No longer have to go to Brother to download and install the driver. I am getting to like the new look.

  • I like LM but Cinnamon lags on many features that are standard in all other DEs. Its a great pity. But i can use the MATE Edition as well. 😉

    That's great, I guess I'll install Linux again, I had a lot of problems in the past with the Linux functionality, maybe that update saves my life, I hope at least.

  • is most Ubuntu 18.04 feature like color emoji etc available in Linux Mint 19?
    Will I regret switching to Linux Mint from Ubuntu?

  • All the things you said which are fast, like the search and stuff, is because it's a live boot.

    There's zero to none cache right now and neither any installed application which will take time to search.

    It's all because it's a live boot 😂😂

  • Thank you for the excellent reviews (as always) Abhishek. Also, a big Mazel Tov (congratulations) on six years of FOSS. The linux learning curve has been so much easier thanks to FOSS. Thank you.
