The applications are newer as well as the kernel and if he needs support with it, there are more users running Ubuntu Focal and Mint 20. You don't need a se...

Re: installing LMDE4 fron live CD

In compatibility mode some drivers are disabled and you wil have a low screen resolution during the install, but you can still install mint in that mode. You can also try to add the 'nomodeset ' option from the install dvd by pressing tab while the 'Start Linux Mint' choice in the menu is hilighted...

Re: Gaming setup guide for Linux mint

Better than liquorix but not stock. Also, they are comparing different branches of kernel so the code improvements upstream may account for this to some extent. I'm not dismissing your personal experiences but it does put me in two minds as to whether or not I'd want to start messing with an instal...

Re: LMDE as XFCE

I just noticed that on LMDE4 xfce is only in version 4.12, while version 4.14 has been out for a while, and mint-meta-xfce is only available for repositories under bionic / focal.
