Linux Mint has been flawless for me, never an issue with drivers , anytime a new piece of hardware is installed Linux seems to find the right drivers.
I started with linux mint cinnamon until I started having problems with the display, switched to MATE 2 years ago and it's been great. I am looking forward to the new features in "Tara".

BTW The complainers need to go back to windows so they can realize why they left windows to begin with

I keep checking every day for 19 to be available with a love/hate, Loving mint on my three PC's and hate the idea of re-installing 19 on all of them but will. I probably won't update the game server pc for a bit though. This laptop and the Main PC will get the update asap when 19 arrives, I'm liking XFCE a lot and getting pretty familiar with it; Meaning I'm not blowing up the PC once a week anymore and that's a good thing ;-) Learning where to keep my fingers out of has helped a lot and Timeshift is a life saver.
Thanks Mint Team your awesome....

Yes Mint19 will have Cinnamon 3.8. Mint18.3 has Cinnamon 3.6.
When I give opinions, they are my own. Not necessarily those of any other Linux Mint developer or the Linux Mint project as a whole.

Will the 4.4.x kernels be available via the update manager? There is a lot of hardware not fully supported under the later kernels and it would be nice if those that need 4.4.x could install it and keep it up to date via the update manager.

I have heard a car model named "Nova" didn't go well in Spanish speaking countries, because it means "No go". Is that what you're thinking of?

No, no... that term was really a swearword.

Ford Pinto (in Spanish)
Mazda Laputa (in Spanish)
Ford Pinto (in Spanish)

O.K. this are cars - I had my doubts in Mint about "U" - but what in "V"... - I have 2 warnings here in the Mint Forums - so I can't go into it any further.

English is THE international language worldwide, why should we worry if English words translate into something different in foreign languages. In English the word doss means to sleep and is often applied to tramps and down and outs, do you think Microsoft worried about that when they invented their original OS, DOS!

I don't think so - it's going to be based on Ubuntu 18.4 which has 4.15 as it's LTS - so initially 19 will only have 4.15 kernels officially supported.

If someone had unsupported hardware but could at least boot from 4.15 I guess it should be possible to manually install a 4.4 kernel via deb packages downloaded from https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/kernel/ - obviously untested at this point and I'm not sure what side-effects if any might come with doing this.

Omitting the name of Tara, the news of the version 19 ????? in addition to those announced .. will there be software improvements and implementations?
- notification center, integration with calendar and thunderbird mail ... (also thanks to online-account and gnome-calendar)
By now everyone is looking for a notification panel, which can even manage social networks ..
A kind of dashboard that can be displayed on request to get an overview (full screen,..) , where even collect data from custom scripts ... Or as an implementation of the display of all the desklets together, joined in the dashboard (Deepin / ElementaryOS /Budgie ...SolusOS, have the notification sidebar , like Apple ...) (Linux Mint can do it !!!)

Image

https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/issues/1614

The return of a CinnaDock? or the possibility to convert the panel to the dock (using the Icing Task Manager applet ..)

As for Nemo, FEATURES REQUEST are numerous .. we hope they are inserted as soon as possible (maybe the miller column view ...)

From everything you've said above it sounds to me like you're using the wrong distro. Mint Cinnamon is awesome and I personally don't want any of the features you mentioned./ Cinnamon is very elegant, clean looking, functional and highly customizable as it is. And Nemo is awesome. Sounds like Ubuntu Budgie would be more up your street. I love Cinnamon because, to me it's what Gnome 3 should have been. I do agree with the notifications and I do think the Cinnamon calender on the panel should be more interactive.
