I'm new to Linux Mint. I nearly had a stroke going through the many Linux distributions, reading forums, watching videos, reading ratings, etc., until I finally said... 'the heck with it' and went for Mint. Then I had to do the whole thing over trying to decided between Mate and Cinnamon. I chose Mate. Ran it for a day, configured the heck out of it, but kept getting this niggling feeling, so I downloaded Cinnamon. After checking that out, I dropped Mate and went to Cinnamon. Now... for 2 days straight I've been adding things, deleting things, changing things, configuring things, etc. No offense, but I want to hang myself after typing my password no less than 375,864,987 times. At this point, I don't care who gets what off of my computer... lol.
Seriously though, I ended up here because of all of that. I can see where it can be a good thing, as stated. I'm hoping, once I get everything to where I want it to be, it will be less often I'll have to do it. Otherwise anyone is welcome to visit me in the nuthouse. I'll be the one in the straight jacket, rocking back and forth in my padded cell, drooling and mumbling something about Linux.
