Meh... just out of curiosity, I was going to take a look in a VM, but the iso would not boot. Gave up.
Having Open/Close and Minimize on left instead of the right was enough for me to shut it down after it booted.

Yeah, the old hack made the rounds again a couple years later. Many people acted like it was a new hack. They even pointed to old sites as proof!

Re: New Arch install vs Mint 19.3

I don't see any need for purpose-made light distros Don't know if you follow phoronix as they have tested Arch Against Ubuntu a few time and the difference (just like you found) isn't as great as people claim.

Re: can i browse firefox mint version/changes on the web?

It's quite possible i've remembered the url wrong and it was something more along the lines of the redirection link (http://redir.linuxmint.com) that was mention in one of the old threads i posted?

Which is highly likely considering it was years ago.

Re: can i browse firefox mint version/changes on the web?

In any case, I have faith in the Mint developers to be sensible about whatever they've done. I can't find the old thread (maybe it was reddit?) but there was lots of complaints about find.mintsearch.net and it was seemingly made difficult for people to use a search without it's hooks which was impl...
