I suggest a gnome shell edition of Linux mint 19

Ubuntu is messing gnome again with it's launcher sticking it down the throat of its users. I suggest a gnome shell edition of Linux Mint with nemo by default and all the bells and whistles!!

Linux Mint 19 will come in a Cinnamon, MATE and Xfce edition. After installing Linux Mint 19 you can add Gnome Shell as a desktop environment if you want. If you want it to be the sole desktop environment I suggest you use the Xfce edition as Xfce is easiest to remove after installing another desktop environment.

That's basically what MATE already provides.
All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....
