Linux Mint 19.1: The better-than-ever Linux desktop
The new Linux Mint is another step forward in what's already an outstanding Linux desktop distribution.
I was simply reminded again why I use Linux desktops. More than two months after its discharge, the Windows 10 October 2018 Update is at last suggesting "propelled clients" can introduce it. Actually, I like running working frameworks that don't pulverize my information or accompany Blue Screens of Death. It additionally doesn't hurt any that the most recent long-haul bolster (LTS) arrival of Linux Mint, Mint 19.1, is a brilliant desktop.
As previously, I extremely like Mint's customary windows, symbols, menus, and pointers (WIMP) interface. The default Cinnamon 4.0 desktop is quicker and snappier than ever.
What's that? You like the newer desktop styles? All things considered, Mint 19.1 has you secured, as well.
Cinnamon 4.0 likewise incorporates a Modern interface. The style accompanies a window list with application gathering and windows review. You've seen comparative looks in as a dock, macO; a board, Windows 10; or a sidebar in Ubuntu 18.04 and GNOME. With Mint, in contrast to these others, you can pick which style you like.
You get a decision of three board zones (left, focus, and appropriate for even boards; best, focus, and base for vertical ones). Inside each zone, you can pick the symbol measure or have them scale to fit the board estimate or to naturally downsize to the biggest fresh symbol measure for the board.
Actually, one reason I cherish Mint is its old style WIMP interface. Be that as it may, you can without much of a stretch choose for yourself. You can switch forward and backward between the work of art and the Modern interfaces.
On the off chance that Cinnamon doesn't work for you by any means, Linux Mint 19.1 is likewise already accessible with the MATE and Xfce desktops.
On the off chance that you do choose to run with Cinnamon - for my cash, the best desktop interface of all - it's worked in record chief, Nemo is a lot quicker than in past variants. How much quicker? Mint's engineers guarantee it's "multiple times quicker." You know what? They're correct. On the off chance that you've utilized Nemo previously, you'll be astounded at the speed increment.
In my tests, utilizing my undeniably matured 2011 Dell XPS 8300 with its 3.4GHz quad-center Intel Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM, Mint ran rapidly and impeccably. Have a go at running Windows 10 on a similar box, and you'd cry with dissatisfaction. You can run Mint 19.1 on PCs with as meager as a GigaByte of RAM and a 32-bit processor.
Mint, as ever, out of the crate is more secure than macOS or Windows ever longed for being. On my Mac and Windows boxes, I'm continually tinkering with patches and security programming. On Mint? It's a none issue. I have never had a solitary security issue.
Indeed, there are reports of Linux security issues, yet they don't hold water once you take a gander at them. For instance, to taint a Linux framework, the most recent Linux crypto miner requires a head to absurdly introduce the shell-based malware or to criminally misuse their SSH secure logins. Of course, a Linux framework can be defiled, yet you truly need to attempt to mess your PC up while essentially opening the wrong email can taint Windows frameworks.
One reason is that, while Installing programming on Mint with the Software Manager is thoughtlessly straightforward, the projects are screened by Linux Mint. Indeed, you can accumulate Linux programs from source. Be that as it may, this is 2018. You're not any more liable to do that than introduce a Windows program from a ZIP record utilizing a BAT document.
You should not introduce numerous projects. As usual, Mint accompanies the newest forms of such basic desktop programs as Firefox 64 for your web-perusing, LibreOffice 6.06 for your office work, and Thunderbird 60.2.1 for your email.
In the engine, Mint 19.1 keeps running on the 126.96.36.199 piece. In the event that you need to change that, the new Mint makes that simpler than ever. The Update Manager records all the current mainline parts and records their help status. The Update Manager likewise makes it simple to erase unused bits.
In the event that you need you can likewise introduce the bits with the investigate images introduced. Debian Linux, Mint's establishment Linux, has evacuated these images. That makes it harder to investigate application crashes. Including the investigate image storehouses should now be possible with a tick of the mouse in the Software Sources apparatus. I suggest you do this.
