For sure the base kernel will not be 4.14.
LMDE3 will be based on the current Debian Stable and on its current kernel.
Maybe 4.14 will be available in the backports. But that's a totally different story.

Re: Is Linux Mint as secure as it could be?

It has already been discussed and explained that the opinion of a Ubuntu dev about something he was unaware of is not interesting. Time has already been lost to explain why he was wrong. I don't see any point in starting all over again. Please read this: http://segfault.linuxmint.com/2016/09/address...

Re: Hurricane Irma...

Getting back to Irma, the latest European weather model tracks Irma into the Gulf of Mexico, and roughly over Key West. While our meterological outlets are all weighting the American (GFS) system's tracks more because the European one is an outlier at this point, they do recognize it could also be ...

Re: Update Issue

Since you are running a different kernel, I would remove this old one.

Code: Select all

apt remove linux-image-4.8.0-53-generic linux-kernel-generic linux-image-extra-4.8.0-53-generic

Re: no prompt for password for encrypted home folder

Your home is encrypted. The password used is your login password. Once you log in, your home is decrypted.
It's for sure working, as I had an issue with my VPN, and this issue is famous for being related to encrypted /home. :wink:

Re: Is Linux Mint as secure as it could be?

Linux Mint is really secure and for sure as secure as Ubuntu. They use the same repositories and therefore you have the same versions for all the software inside the repo. This "Linux Mint is not secure" statement is FUD and was answered several times in the last years. Maybe you can start here: htt...

Re: Is LMDE suitable for business desktop pc ?

I would prefer Mint over LMDE - simply because there is more support available for it. and it tends to remain stable after upgrades. just my opinion , others may disagree. Completely disagree.

To my understanding, you need to update to 18.1 first and then you can go for 18.2.
