      Not mentioned in the article is that snaps are blocked in Mint by default. Should you want them on Mint you can forget about just running sudo apt install snapd, it won't work, you'll get this error : package 'snapd' has no installation candidate
      Should you really want to intall snapd, you have to remove this file: /etc/apt/preferences.d/nosnap.pref

        Michael did mention this in a previous article. Personally, I like the policy, but wish Mint would make it an easier option to turn on (i.e in their settings or package manager GUI).

          in a preview of the results, most well known desktops are much of a muchness Gnome/KDE Plasma/XFCE/ all scoring within a percent or 2 of each other.

          As Performance here is so close, I do not think this is what you want - it's the ease of use and getting things done without having to troubleshoot issues along the way - a "Time to task completion" measured against a range of Linux users of varying ability
