Re: Linux Mint 19.2: why not based on Ubuntu 18.04.03?

have to ask why the devs didn't wait for unbuntu 18.04.3 to be released before building this? So why not ask them? learn to read i did ask the devs right above. So why not ask them? Wisely spoken. :) Double down on this then you'd be as big of a loser as the person above you is.
