Confused about 19.2; is it long term or beta? (off-topic part)

How can you use Tina Turner as a way to introduce Linux Mint,I sure hope she is getting paid for being used as an advertisement. for Linux Mint...19.2.
Cause I can say is I will never upgrade base on Tina Turner.I will go to another Distro like Debian.....maybe you will dissapprove this post like Steam.....it still doesn't work.....

Err I think it's only a few members here who have connected Tina Turner with the release codename. All Mint releases are codenamed with female names.

Steam works just fine by the way but I recommend getting the current deb installer straight from the Steam site.
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.

I was told when I upgrade on Facebook there won't be any more security support for Linux Mint...
By whom?
+1. Really, the signal to noise ratio on the web is appalling.

But I can't get news from the official news sites when they are untrustworthy and Facebook extrapolates the real truth out of it anyway and just gives the info you need. It keeps telling me my Nvidia 7950 GT is Steam compatible but my steam doesn't run either on my intel onboard, -that's not my fault that Ike Turner always does performances dressed in drag.

As a regular on several different computer forums and other technical support forums, this is the funniest post I have ever read. I have no clue what you were trying to say, which just makes this post hilarious.

Oh yeah, I am a huge Tine Turner fan as well but too bad she will never visit a capitalist country again. She claims that living in a socialist nation is much freer to her soul. Good for her!!!!

I was rather lukewarm about Tina Turner in the eighties, but since this great new Tina OS was recently launched into orbit, I started playing some of those Tina songs again and they truly do ROCK!
