Linux Mint 20: Still the best Linux desktop despite one quirk
Linux Mint's latest release, Mint 20, offers significant improvements, but its developers' refusal to make it easy to use Ubuntu Snap is a downside.
Linux Mint recently released its latest long-term support (LTS) version of its popular desktop Linux desktop, Linux Mint 20, "Ulyana." This edition, based on Canonical's Ubuntu 20.04, is, once more, an outstanding Linux desktop distribution.
As before, you can use three different desktop looks with Mint 20. These are my own favorite Cinnamon, which was inspired by GNOME 2.x; MATE, a fork of the GNOME 2; and the ultra-lightweight Xfce. Most desktop users will be happy with Cinnamon or MATE. I use Xfce on low-powered systems or when running Linux on Chromebooks or Windows 10 PCs with Windows SubSystem for Linux (WSL) 2.
