One problem I had with Mint 18 is that there is no Gnome-Schedule yet. Not a problem for me, as I did my Cron job the old fashioned way but, this could stump many new users.
Really, as @Clem says, if your system is working on 17.3, stay on it.
One could say, was 18 launched too early as there are functions that no longer work in the new OS.
Good idea, not sure it is do-able.
We can but ask, only the Devs know the full implications. Promoted.
At first glance this seems like a good idea.
But... backporting two entire DE's with most software is no small task that may take months. Development time that could be put to better use IMHO.
