Reason: moved to "Chat about Linux" in general, because this is no support request and not strictly limited to Linux Mint

I don't understand one bit of this question. Is this flame bait from a troll? :shock:

What is "the" direction?

And what Linux desktop environment do you mean? There's a whole bunch of them.

Assuming this is a serious question - just for the sake of discussion. AND assume it is asking if the linux (specifically Mint) desktop “. . .[is] still going [in] the [right] direction” it would still beg the argument which desktop environment?

Therefor I would suggest learning about the choices – just Google “linux desktop choices”

Bottom line IMHO – there is pretty much a desktop to suite everyone's needs and tastes.

My thoughts are that it was a question, what with the "?" at the end.

In a reply to someone with the nick mrgoogle. :lol:

In the famous movie picture from Sergio Leone "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" the 2 main characters say multiple times throughout the movie in regard of different things (re-translated from German): "There are 2 different kind of ...". In this case, there are 2 different kind of questions, those that can get answered and those, which cannot. :x

i was thinking of changing the name of "home" to "my files" and "my files" to "treasure chest" and treasure chest is password protected. And that's a windows explorer not a file manager. i prefer windows explorer and file-manager to be merge as one

desktop environment doesn;t need to be exactly be the same as the one in my vision but at least it should be as easy, organized, and staright-forward like the one i posted; now a days developers are working really hard to be make the UI of most distros very simplistic and easy to understand for everyone but to me they are stil going the wrong the direction because of these reasons; 1st of all there is no clear target market or specific target people for their designs, 2nd they fail to connect to them and make them realize and understand the concept and purpose of their designs to their target people, 3rd most distros' UI are becoming more and more complex instead of becoming simplistic, although not all distos would fall in into this category

Not complex! Gnome3 and Unity as simple as farmer's rakes. Old XFCE ,comparing to them, is a top of complexity. There is also Enlightenment DE. That's where the real nightmare.

ubuntu's unity is indeed simple but its theme and material designing is just horrible and gnome on the otherhand is not well organize(APPS) and it looks like everything is kind of messed-up
