I should have mentioned in my 1st OP post,
even though I posted what my laptop is, that didn't give the specs.
it has 16 gB RAM, and super fast video, and cpu.
So, no matter what I ask it to do, it just "happens now"...
I like the default theme in 19.3 Cinnamon, have played with some of the others.
In 18.3 I had to change to one of the alternate themes that didn't glare into my eyeballs so bad.
That occurred after I was the recipient of Cataract eye surgery, which turned the world from a hazy glaze, to a crystal clear non-tinted glare.
I use Redshift all the time in Night Mode, and the screen brightness at minimum.
I have another ASUS TUF machine that is 10 years old, think I will install Mate on that one and explore what the differences are side by side.
I appreciate everyone's comments, please continue to give a more rounded picture of MATE.
