Mint is great
Still using 18.3 at the moment, may wait until version 20 comes along in the Summer before doing a fresh install. Used Mint for around 6 or 7 years now, when Window 8 came along which I thoroughly hated. Really pleased with the switch to Linux, love the fast boot time and lack of clutter and system bloat ware.
I wouldn't describe the start menu as like Windows 10 though as stated in the article, more like Windows 7, which was a proper menu.
