Linux Mint 20, codenamed "Ulyana," was recently released so I thought I would take a quick first look at Linux Mint 20 with the Cinnamon desktop environment. Linux Mint 20 has made headlines recently due to their decision to try to block installation of snaps.

In University, maybe 12 years ago, my friend introduced me to Linux Mint. I hated it, but it could access the bad sectors our pirated movies and music Windows couldn't read.
It would be 8 years later when Windows broke my AC and my battery. 20 minutes, it would drain. But charging was a pain.
By then I was legit. I bought all software. Best decision ever. Because I refused to pirate Windows, I looked for alternatives. I remembered Mint. But I wanted my own journey this time. I install vanilla Ubuntu and my life changed.

Today, I'm a Systems Architect. I run Arch and DWM.

Christ, have I been with Linux that long? My first distro was Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon... late 2012? I guess I'm well and truly over Windows :D woohooooo!

You already know, I'm sure, but the problem with snaps is that Ubuntu installs without your knowledge/indication. When install Chromium, for instance, it installs Snaps. For those not wanting Snaps, then finding it installed behind your back is underhanded. Love Mint Cinnamon. But I use Manjaro XFCE :)

How did you get the impression that people are missing snap dt?
No one is sad about not finding snap in linux mint in fact most people would which not finding them in ubuntu either if only canonical would listen to it's users that is...

I love Mint. But I use Mate instead of Cinnamon. I installed it on my XPS developer's edition and seems to work great. I am not excited about the fonts in the desk bar, I've found a snag using light wallpapers while using transparent desk bar. Other then that Mint 20 seems fantastic. I don't tend to like Snaps so I am glad that isn't enabled. It's just bloat and a vector for viruses. I got away from Windows to get away from the bloat and insecurities after all.

I use Mint 19.3 XFCE. Been stable as a rock, super quick, and light on resources. I have maybe two Flatpak apps installed but my apps are mostly from custom added PPAs and DEB file install direct from the software devs. No Snaps. Everything works and I have full control. Couldn’t be happier.

I installed Linux Mint XFCE this past weekend (Cinnamon does look great, but I prefer XFCE) and am really loving it. I followed the instructions on the Linux Mint User Guide to install ungoogled-Chromium. Though my preferred browser is Firefox.

Synaptics has screenshots for most of the packages. It just lacks user reviews.

Linux mint was my first distribution, still have some love for it XD, sadly had to hop because the custom Realtek drivers module was pretty bad, now i'm happy on manjaro and thinking of trying out arch (Or Artix).

Rock solid easy to use distro. Used it for years. Tried others, but always come back to this. Very reliable and easy to use distro.

Pretty informative video. I remember the first time I tried Linux, was with mint actually. I think it was on early 2017, I know, not that long ago. I do believe is a solid system tho!

Been using Linux Mint 19.x for a year now. I made the transition off of windows a little early.

@DistroTube
An emultor runs one line of assembly code all the time, it uses a different architecture to run those lines which were originally run on another architecture. Wine does not do that, it just replaces the functions of the Windows libraries with functions from its own libraries.

Great Stuff DistroTube, I always appreciate your videos. I watched your video on how to install arch and it started me on my way to learning Arch so thanks for that.

Hey, DT, I'm running Debian straight on hardware and have been adding to it incrementally to make it more functional and appealing to the eye. I'm thinking of going as far as grabbing things I like from Mint and installing them on my Debian instance since there are some appealing features as seen here. Have you thought of maybe making a bare-debian install video, no graphical environment, just SSH Server and Print Server installed, and just incrementally adding to it to have your own customized instance comparable to a Mint or Kali distro? I feel like that would make for a cool video.

For what I heard the issue was that it would use snap when you tried to use apt. It should always be the choice of the user what package manager is used. If I do enter sudo apt install, then I want to install with apt, not snap.
