Looks like testing is about done on Mint’s 19.2 … Monthly News – July 2019:

We entered QA testing again yesterday and we should be able to announce the stable release of Linux Mint 19.2 by the end of the week.

QA testing” being Quality Assurance. Great news, since I have been waiting for this release to come out, and have held back on any more Mint reviews until it did. Left some spots open on the Karmi’s Top 3-5 Linux Distros for Windows Newbies page, since I already knew it was a good Distro for Newbies and would end up there.

Guess the rumors about Mint’s demise can take a break, for now. I could’ve done a review on the BETA, but Mint deserves a little patience in order to show its best – i.e. 19.2 is named “Tina” because of Tina Turner’s song ‘Simply the Best’.

Be great to finally install and test a Linux Distro that knows how to setup Installers after dealing with DosArch and Namib the other day. Distros like Ubuntu, Mint, Zorin, etc know how to set up a Distro beyond just copying the Linux Kernel. There’s a lot more besides the Linux Kernel, as Ubuntu proves daily.
