Suggestion for Linux Mint 19 "TARA"

:arrow: Essential programs like Wine should have already been updated with the latest stable version ...

:arrow: Gsmartcontrol should come as standard, because we need to have a more complete hard disk problem identification tool ...

One man's point of view >>>

1) Not only is WINE not essential, it is undesirable IMO. If you want to run win software, I think virtual machines - a la vmware, virtualbox, etc. are a better option.

2) HD diagnostic tools that get into tracks, sectors, heads, etc. strike me as special purpose software and not really part of an OS. Something that the user could install if desired is probably the better way to go IMO.

Currently testing LM19C64 - Lookin' good so far!
