I have to say farewell to a DE that I have yet to use.
I have a favorite game. It's on my Youtube Channel.

It was my favourite! Too bad more didn't try it.

Klem, I just wanted to say how impressed and amazed I've been over the years with you and your team and I am happy to report that in my 35 years as an IT guy, I have Never sold as many New & Used Mint systems as I have with the release of Linux Mint 18.3 x64 KDE - it has been stunning, so stable, fast beautiful and best of all nearly all users were converts from Windows, KDE making it so easy for everyone to get quickly comfortable with Mint in very short order! Not a single user has requested me to switch them back to Windows (something I offer in the 1st 30 days if they just can't make a go of it). I am entirely an AMD house, always have been and what's left of my MSI A88XM Gaming motherboards with A10 APUs has gone to and worked perfectly with Mint 18.3 x64 KDE - I so appreciate all you and your team do, it is without doubt, the best in the world today! I look forward to Tara 19 KDE when it comes but for now am very happy with 18.3! I also might suggest a Patreon page (assuming that makes sense to you and your team) as an option for sustainable monthly support... Quite sincerely, Daddio
Linux Mint 18.3 x64 KDE AMD A10-7890K, MSI A88XM Gaming MB, 16GB DDR3 2400 GS, AMD R7 SSDs (120GB for Mint, 120GB Win10, 512GB SamSSD Win7-64 Ult, 512GB SamSSD Gaming & Scratch), and also on my 17.3" AMD Phenom II laptop.

Oh my, guess I didn't see that one - well, it is understandable of course, I knew some time ago that KDE was essentially following a different drummer. Thing of it is, every time I test Mate or Cinnamon, I find issues that do Not seem to be in KDE. I do Love how fast M & C are but the interface still comes across a bit unpolished and old school Linux at times. Add to this that everyone, without exception so far has either gone back to Windows or KDE after trying out M & C, so my success rate is not very positive where as with KDE, it has been excellent! Well, will just have to trust the Mint deities, Klem & Team to work it all out - I believe in you guys, one and all! Thanks sgthawker for the clarity!

And it will be for some time. LM 18.3 KDE is still supported until April 2021. :)
