    Thanks for the heads up :thumbsup:

    On a side note, I am having to reinstall Linux Mint 18 fresh. Will this new update be an issue? Should I hold off installing 18 and wait for 18.1 to be released?

    Missing xfce
    Missing Gnome

    I really don't like that they never release these under the beta. I'm more of a xfce or gnome type person.

    Mint doesn't ship with Gnome (3) at all.

    An oversight on their part in my opinion, but they do have an XFCE build. Just wish they'd release it with their beta's too.

    They made Cinnamon because they don't like Gnome3.

    KDE and Xfce versions usually lag behind the Cinnamon and Mate releases. In the past they have released beta versions of all editions shortly before releasing the final version and I have no reason to believe they will change this practice.

    As to the Gnome 3 issue, Mint's popularity grew wildly because they offered an alternative desktop environment. Personally i am VERY glad they did. I consider the Gnome 3 shell and Ubuntu's default desktop to be unusable. Lots of choices is one of Linux's best features, everybody can use what they like best.
