Long-term Linux Mint: 19.3 release unchains the Gimp, adds HiDPI, is kind to your older, less-beefy kit

Re: Introduction to Linux for Windows refugees

I've migrated quite a few of my elderly informal customer support cohort to Cinnamon/Mint from Windows in an effort to give them something reliable and more easily supported than the OS that came with the new laptop. For users who only want to browse, send and receive email and write the occasional letter and who only know an OS as "The Windows" it's the easiest way to prize them out of the hands of Redmond using their existing machine. For the non-technical Windows user there's little paradigm shift, everything is where they expect to find and it Just Works. As it reduces my support workload I have been more than happy to roll it out.
