            You're absolutely right, and it really is too bad Mint doesn't ship with KDE or Plasma, but at the time they dropped it doing so made sense. I haven't needed to tweak a DE in ages but I remember using Plasma for several months and loving it.

          I actually really dislike KDE. It's just a personal preference. To me, it's options fatigue. It's too customizable. Cinnamon is good by default. I prefer to ignore my desktop environment and I don't care about resizing panels and shit, I just want everything to be like Windows XP and Cinnamon does that

            The only thing you need to do is change single click for double click and change floating panel into non-floating panel. It's otherwise fine out of the box, just because it lets you customize doesn't mean you need to.
            A few clicks will get you a better desktop with more features that has a similar Windows look, it's a no brainer for me.

            the last time i used KDE it was kubuntu back in like 2017 i think and it was literally buggy. like i would open start menu and it would just never go away until i rebooted. I've played with it in VM's, it's beautiful, but literally default Linux Mint Cinnamon is exactly how I want my desktop to behave. that's all i'm saying.
            and I don't care about gayland vs xorg because I can't tell the difference I've never run into an issue in that department.
            I'm just a fan of Linux Mint and Cinnamon.
            I hated Unity, I hated that garbage, when mint came out it was just good Ubuntu and it's been my go to ever since

            Okay, but you admitted your concept of KDE is many years outdated. I haven't experienced much buggyness with newer Plasma versions. Cinnamon does have bugs though, like how changing the cursor (Bibata is fugly btw) makes the default cursor come back when it's over a Qt application (VLC, qBittorrent, Steam), the release notes themselves acknowledge this and give you a terminal command to run so this doesn't happen.
            Another example is opening the file manager in a directory with a partially downloaded video, the thumbnail won't generate even after the download is finished and you'll look it up and find out you have to manually refresh the thumbnails for the entire directory.

            I'll concede that, but it's still better than being affected by it, in any case. they also reacted pretty quickly when this was found and pushed an update (like I'm sure pretty much any serious distro did or at least should have done)
            I still don't know what you use, but I personally do want a rolling release. and as far as those go, the only ones that were unaffected were arch and its derivatives, and gentoo. and I'm too moronic for the latter, so arch it is

    Mint and Debian are stuck backwards in time too much.

    Just from the top of my mind:
    1) Gnome got a triple buffering patch (3 years ago btw) massively improving compositing performance. Cinnamon does not have it, and will not have it for many years to come.
    2) Pulseaudio was long time ago ditched in favor of pipewire that actually somewhat fixed audio issues on Linux. Mint is still tied to pulseaudio. Can be replaced, but it may work with issues.

            and pipewire mostly functions as a less bad pulseaudio than the total replacement it was designed to be. adoption of the native pipewire interface is virtually zero because pipewire-pulse is "good enough". even pipewire's video backend is virtually unused too outside of wayland. it's an incredible disappointment how it all turned out.

      Gnome may be even literal gift from God and I'll refuse to use it because it looks and feels like garbage.
      Tech babble is meaningless when software feels like garbage in use. And literally everyone acknowledges that using Gnome is like being buttfricked with rusty wire brush but the troony Black personoid homosexuals calling themselves "developers" ignore it because they fricking suck ass.

    I mean, it has all the important bits out of box. Tho personally I replace their windows manager with LXQT because that's my preference.

        fake image, update manager on linux mint doesn't even use that color scheme
        this is what it really is
        5.15 is the most upto date kernel supported not the least

        Then use Debian. No reason to use some hobbyist derivative of a derivative with lax security.

    Mint is for people switching from windows and just want something that works.
    Arch is for people who are in a committed relationship with their computer.

      too bad that there is so little OOB distros with OpenRC, the only I can think of are Artix and Gentoo
