I just upgraded my workhorse guest from 19.1 to 19.2. 19.2 is suppose to encompass a number of improvements including faster response but as I already said, I have no speed issues ... just like to stay current.

My workhorse VB guest uses both monitors, each with firefox loaded and 12 to 50 tabs opened on each. Will test for several weeks before I update base machine and other guests ... maybe even a bit longer as also upgraded VB to 6.0.10.

Didn't mention in other post but PC has 32G which I think is probably much more important than linux OS as to keeping everything from bogging down as is the SDD which houses base and all guests but one. Running from HD is slower when you are spoiled using SDDs but its not crippling.

I was a very old hand at various iterations of windows from its beginnings but although using mint for several years, I am a very novice Linux USER.

For me the extremely easy updates and the more recent introduction of the wonderful backup tool (Timeshift) have resolved two of the biggest windows inconveniences. Timeshift has saved my inexperienced bacon countless times.

I love mint cinnamon.
