If I read it right Linux Mint 19.3 is due to arrive for Christmas. I never got a chance to work with 19.2. Still have 19.1Xfce working along with 18.3 Cinnamon.

that will work out just right for me on this Tuf laptop....
Tuf sure fits for a name, it is a ******* to work with.
still have not installed the new SSD.... just have not felt the energy to get it done...
today, I am suffering from a bad molar that has to be pulled on Monday..... I am living on HydroCodone every 3 hours just to be able to not be kicking the dogs around the house.

Still using it on Win10, and with it being so speedy, it has not been a big impediment like windoze before that I have used.

the unfriendly things on windoze are the lack of friendly tools to work with that I became so used to on 18.3 Cinnamon.

like the Screenshot tool, windoze has one, it is clumsy though.
Control-Q does not kill applications like it is supposed to on windoze...

guess I have been using Mint "too long" now, I am ruined as a windoze fanatic :(

By the time 19.3 Cinnamon comes out you'll be ready to give it a try. I have to use Windows7, as Peppermint9 got ruined on the red Dell e6410. Knot-head tenant behind me let the sink over flow in the kitchen and the flood came to my place. The power supply as sitting on the floor when the tide rose and my feet were getting wet and then a day later the laptop hasn't been the same. My book shelf got ruined also. Whatever happened the hard drive got corrupted.

Take care of yourself and take it easy.

I hope the 19.3 Cinnamon is as good as the 18.3 Cinnamon as I've been working with 19.1Xfce. The 18.3 is running in the Windows7 laptop since the disaster in my apartment and the red Dell e6410 ruining hard drives.

well,
for me the answer is still hanging in the winds...

too many chores around here to get done first.
was outside doing a 3rd round of mowing the grass again.....

1st time, left six inch high windrows of hay piled up.

2nd time, just moved the windrows of hay around a bit, and left it all choppy looking.

3rd time tonight, only got maybe an acre mowed again, looking almost like it should.

it is obvious that a 42 inch mower deck is too damn small to properly mow grass.

going back tomorrow and see if they will let me trade up to the 48" model which was only $100 more if I had bought it the first time.

the Husqvarna has a 48" deck, and it mows pretty good.... still not as good as a 60" deck will do though.

42" with 3 blades, are only 14" long, way too damn short to cut good. leaves high ridges in between the blades.
