Linux Mint 19.1 “Cinnamon” and Arch Linux

Linux Mint 19.1 "Cinnamon"

Linux Mint is an Ubuntu-based Linux designed for out-of-the-box ease of use. Version 19.1 is a long-term support release with updates and security patches until 2023. The Cinnamon edition is built around the popular Cinnamon desktop, a project based on Gnome 3 that seeks to preserve conventional desktop metaphors in the modern age. Version 19.1 comes with the Cinnamon 4.0 desktop and includes enhancements for the Update Manager, performance improvements for the Nemo file manager, and better support for NVidia graphics cards.

Arch Linux

Arch is the ultimate Linux hacker system. The Arch developers are a tight-knit community of experts who are devoted to a minimalist philosophy. Arch is intended for advanced users. Don't expect a cornucopia of desktop apps or even a desktop user interface when you boot into Arch. What you can expect is simplicity, elegance, code correctness, and stability. If you want to add a desktop user environment and set up your own collection of desktop apps, you can rely on Arch's sizable package repositories and its venerable pacman package manager.
