Vis-à-vis Deepin, I am wary of anything coming out of certain sources, and China is one of them. I don't factually know there's bad things going on within that distro, but frankly I wouldn't be willing to take the chance.

I think Mac OS X 10.6 was the last one with an appealing (to me, at least) UI. I do not like any of the flat UIs out there, be they Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Windows, or any of the several GNU+Linux desktop environments' takes on the concept. As with this topic's OP, I think the default Cinnamon "Mint Y" icons are utilitarian at best and fugly at worst, which is why I change to the Mint X Aqua ones the moment I do an install of LM.

Mint 19.2 seems to be taking positive steps to making Linux look better. Next step Libre Office making their product look better.

Good, clear clean crisp fonts with excellent anti-aliasing. Icons the same way, clear, crisp, well defined. Flat is ok, but boring, I like skewmorphic icons to some extent. But my number one priortity is clean, clear, crisp looking.
Thank you, now I have a much clearer idea of what you mean. I had to look up skeuomorphic, I found this article that explains it well: https://en.99designs.nl/blog/trends/ske ... al-design/
Fascinating reading. Thanks for the link.

Neptune 6 is stunning. I'm now running this as my back-up. A KDE distro based on Debian 10 with more up-to-date apps, kernels and drivers - what's not to like? :D
