I’ve likely used more operating systems than 99% of my readers. I cut my teeth on IBM 360/OS in the 70s. Since then, I’ve used every Apple and Microsoft operating system you’ve ever heard of, and many you’ve never known, such as A/UX and Microsoft Xenix. I’ve also used well over 100 different Unix and Linux distributions. So, when I say Linux Mint 21.1, the latest long-term support (LTS) version of Linux Mint, is not just the best Linux desktop, but the best desktop, it means something.
