LINUX MINT 19 REVIEW!!! (Linux Mint 19 Vs 18.3) EP738

Very Unhappy Customer! Avoid Blue host!!! I’ve been with Blue host too long. Too many problems over the years, a lack of basic service and assistance to address problems they claim to offer help with where other companies will not. What Blue host is special at is directing me to search, the web for addressing any issue they fail to address, which sadly has been every issue I’ve brought to their attention. They offer a multitude of fluff services and their customer service/tech representatives work from home, making the speaking connection poor at times opposed to hard line at an actual company. Far too many complaints to list. Avoid Blue host and invest your money with a company that will actually deliver on what they promise!

Linux Mint 19 Tara is now officially released and ready to take over the Linux World…Again πŸ™‚ But how does Linux Mint 19 compare against the previous Mint 18.3 version?

    Do a "10 things to do after installing Linux Mint 19" video. Could you add some metrics/ benchmarks between 18.3/19 versions in to the mix.

    Awesome video Geek πŸ™‚

    I was thinking of moving over to Linux Mint, but I'm kinda stuck on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with the GNOME desktop. I've fallen in love with the GNOME DE. I just love it.

    What does Clem do with all the donations? He should hire another developer to make it 2. The mint development team is only one. Security is an issue with Mint and Clem needs to be more transparent on a host of things. The forum hack from a couple years ago should make you think twice about running this distro as production. In Vmware offline, it's perfect to tinker.

    Mint 19 keeps Mint's conservative approach – the only groundbreaking change is their update policy – integrating TimeShift to offer protection vs. the risk level approach they've been using for years.
    Cinnamon does feel snappier in 19 – it's subtle but probably noticeable to long time users.
    Mint's strength has always been a laser focus on end user comfort and confidence. I've tried lots of distros over the years, and on average, Mint has fewer conflicts, crashes and catastrophes than others. They spend time ensuring the user has a comfortable, fully usable computer at the first boot.
    They make top-notch tools that make essential controls and configurations easy and put small details in places where they are super useful (like uninstall from the menu)
    Cinnamon could use more configurability with its panel and it suffers the jerky animations of it's Gnome ancestor, but it is the most user-friendly Linux environment out of the box in all of linux-dom.
    It has been and remains my recommendation for first time linux users for going on 10 years now and it's been my primary distro for that time as well.

    I'm rocking the Mint 19 beta Cinnamon, and the first thing I did was remove the Mint Y theme/icons. Sorry, not a member of the Flat Earth Society here folks. Otherwise, great job Mint devs. πŸ˜‰

    The theme you were talking about at the start is mint-Y theme that is on 18.3 but is default on mint 19 mint-Y does look beautiful though and I'm going to install Linux Mint 19 now.
