Jason Evangelho deserves credit for reading the monthly Linux Mint updates and unearthing the angst in it. Running a distribution is a huge endeavor, but it’s also thankless, and it seems like the Mint team is feeling that pain.
Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has more on this, with some interesting quotes from reddit, too.
I try never to hate on any distros, because I can’t even imagine how hard a job it is. Now I’m thinking I should be more proactively kind. Especially to Mint, which I use (and love) on my ThinkPad.
