I know many on the development team are not Facebook users, so thought I would screenshot this, just posted:

I think we are having a effect on some Mint users also.
That said, if I was to introduce one of these distros to someone who has never used Linux before, I once again think I'd choose MX Linux. I say this as I support the operating systems I install. And, historically, I've had zero breakage issues with MX Linux and it's Broadcom support blows away Mint based on my tests. I'm sure that's merely a reflection of some Broadcom chipsets, but my experience is pretty difficult for me to ignore.

Perhaps the biggest thing for me is that XFCE applets just work. Whereas Cinnamon applets (spices) are, well, less than dependable. Sure, if you never try to use the ones that are installed and activated, all is well. However if you try adding any new "spices" (applets) to your Cinnamon panel, it's a toss up as to what will actually work as needed. No thanks.
