Err - what's your source for those numbers? Judging by the official mint tracker's scrape stats for torrent downloads of the isos I think the user numbers are a significant under-estimate.

E.g the current 64bit Cinnamon 19 iso v2 has been downloaded 116792 times - and that's only via the official torrent - not direct downloads. Sure not every download equals a user, but there is definitely more than 6000...

Since the advent of LMDE 3 Cindy I have reversed my preferences to Cinnamon. LMDE 3 is so stable and reliable that I just can't pull myself away from it now. I've tried going back to KDE and it lasted a day before I restored my Clonezilla image of LMDE 3.

Same here but the opposite. I love KDE, everything else I've used seems amateurish.

I'm really loving Cinnamon, i installed it on early September and i really enjoy it. I like it minimal feeling, and overall distribution of menus etc is great. The UI is really great and effects look great. So easy, you can keep focus on your tasks without getting crazy in between. The only thing Cinnamon lacks Its a real proper theme, Cinnamon theme (Mint-Y, just a revamped Arc) is nowhere close to Breeze, which is truly amazing, best defaults on Linux world by far. Cinnamon with Adapta looks amazing too though.. but the defaults are not impressive, they just work. I think the next step for Mint 21 or 22 should be create a real theme. If they nail it you will see Linux Mint 1st again in no time.

Used KDE on an off for years, really like it, but it always crashes - at least some part of it.

Still think it's cool, but I use the standard cinnamon with mint. Never had any issues with it. Just works.
