    Just to bring everyone up to date: The .iso's (final) for Cinnamon and MATE were released on 12/16 and this morning (12/19) I discovered that you can upgrade from 18 to 18.1 using the Update Manager. It didn't take long and everything looks good so far.

    A word of caution about the process: After you check the box to confirm you really want to update and click "Apply", a new dialogue box appears and you're asked to enter your root password. After you do this, there's quite a long pause before the process resumes and the new files begin to download. Be patient here, it will eventually proceed.

    Hmmm, since I installed 18.1 I have extreme long (up to two minutes) shut down times in like 4 of 10 cases. Everything else runs smooth like it did with Mint 18.0.

    I honestly wonder if Linux will ever actually become useable.

    I think that you need have love for this amazing O.S. so stop complaining and help to develop Linux Distros ;) or stay with Windows Home versions and all craps embedded on it :sneaky:

    Mine's quite quick - with 4.8.3 kernel

    Liking the new lock screen, btw.

    Only issue is 3rd party apps need to catch up now.

    LOL.. I use it 90% of the time - it's very usable even with all kinds of mods.

    Are there programs like ScreenOff (Enables you to shut off your screen) and DimScreen (a screen dimming program) for Linux like there are in Windows?
