First off my disclaimer: I am a nobody in the Linux world, I'm a hack at this stuff and I use a computer (and hence my satisfaction ) for the basic stuff. This is going to be installed in my HTPC in a few minutes and I'll edit as things go, now with that being said, let's start.
Downloaded, made the USB live disk (all using 17.3) and did a live boot: Booted fine, internet worked, system monitor loaded and Netspeed loaded, below is my inxi -Fxz. I'll swap my SSD and be back when loaded. (all updates will be below the sys specs) NOTE the below inxi-Fxz is before I load the Beta.

Edit #2: Bookmark came in no problem as well as AdBlocker and Title bar add ons as well as weather and time config. Update went slower than my connection speed (busy server I guess), updates always maxed out my connection speed. next HTPC stuff.
Edit #3: loaded Chromium plus Hola extension (you figure what this is for) All worked, loaded Chrome browser with Netflix and Amazon prime, all worked. Next is the media server stuff (Plex)
Edit #4: Plex loaded, online channels worked OK, but we may have a show stopper here, Kafiene (I use this because I could never get Kodi, mythTV, etc to work on my system due to my own inabilities) I use for my dual tuners (for over the air broadcast recordings) is not working. Scans channels fine, identifies the stations fine, but only 1 sec of audio and no picture. Will see if I can ferrite out the problem (ie. dependencies) but if I can't, I will have to pass on Mint 18.
If I find/resolve the problem, I'll post another update, if not have a great evening ALL
