A bit of history.
For some time, I have been distro-hopping, but have kept coming back to Mint and thinking what an excellent distro it is. In fact, it's 'the best'. So I decided to settle on Mint-Gnome, and have been running version5 owing to its long term support.
I have now tried Mint-XFCE CE, both versions 5 and 6, just from their live CDs, to get an impression of them. Very, very, impressed! The Mint implementation of the XFCE desktop is excellent.
I would like to install XFCE6, dual booting with Mint-Gnome5.
Having got rid of all that waffle, I have a few questions, please.
Will the XFCE6 version cease to be supported in 12 months time as the Gnome6 version will be?
Is it planned that it will be possible to upgrade from XFCE6 to 7, or will it need a fresh installation?
Sorry if these very basic questions have been answered before, but I can't find them.
Many thanks and congratulations to the developers.
