I took 18.04 Budgie and 18.04 Mate for a spin on a 'real' partition each on the test machine (UEFI only, 16Gb ram, fast SSD, AMD8 Quad core, Radeon 8510). I have to say I was seriously impressed. Not with the memory footprint so much; Budgie is outrageous IMHO, but the overall improvements in applications and functionality, productivity etc was quite impressive. Couldn't care less about 'look' as that is so easily customised to preference.

I think it will give the Mint crew a good solid base to work on. I look forward to seeing what they come up with, particularly for the (improved) Cinnamon; my personal favourite, and the Xfce version, most common that I support.

Good luck folks,
greywolf.

Pjotr Thanks for the Easy Linux Tips Project tweaks for Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver. :D
You're welcome! :)

Please note that only the "first things to do" lists for Ubuntu, Xubuntu and Lubuntu have been updated. The rest of my website is still squarely aimed at Mint 18.3 (which is based on Ubuntu 16.04), so only partially usable for Ubuntu 18.04.

I still have to download and install 18.04; I've been a bit occupied with test driving the Manjaro Cinnamon and MATE community editions.

A colleague of mine has Ubuntu 18.04 running. All he could say is that his first impression was OK, but that the system appeared to be a bit sluggish.

I also have Ubuntu 18.04 Mate, multi boot. Yes, it is quite slow.
Maybe it is because of all of the bloat, I don't know why.

Apparently each and every install is quite different from any others. I run also Ubuntu 18.04 MATE on a low-end laptop in a multi-boot setup with among others LM 18.03 Xfce. But I have to say that it feels rather snappy and responsive even somewhat more than my LM Xfce, even though MATE uses slightly more RAM than Xfce does. So all in all I am quite happy with it so far.

I have installed and use Xubuntu 18.04 and Lubuntu 18.04 on my 10 year old
Frankenstein Build
computers and both run fast and run well OOTB. :D
Sure, I can imagine that. I will be giving them a spin within shortly. As it is now, I can't squeeze more OS:s into my disk. I need BIGGER one!

Was going to take 18.04 LTS for a ride but decided to move away from Ubuntu builds.
