minecraft-launcher
"This is simply the launcher for the Java edition (as well as Minecraft Dungeons) except this version is often a bit out of date and thus doesn't launch the game until the apt-team approved of the new version. Which I think is not worth it, personally. You can download Mojang's own Linux launcher from launcher.mojang.com/download/Minecraft.tar.gz as of writing."

org.raspberrypi.rpi-imager
"I downloaded an Ubuntu Server ISO beforehand, but the Raspberry Pi Imaging Utility can already download the Raspberry Pi, Ubuntu Server, several Ubuntu Desktops, Manjaro, (headless) Arch etc. on itself! So whatever you're planning to boot on your Pi, check to see if this Imaging Utility already has it or not!"
5
pokemmo-installer
"It seems to run perfectly on Mint Cinnamon 20.1, and it's perfectly up to date as well!"
5
onionshare
"Launch the program, drop files into a box, click "Share", send someone the .onion link and BAM they can download anything from that box they want! As alper_034 stated, they can only visit it via Tor (it's an .onion link, after all) which is exactly why it's the most anonymous way of sharing! Easy to use, maximum anonymity, love it!"

midori
"Quite some of the settings don't work ("open new window with a specific page", always opens new windows with the same tabs; "only remember 1 day of history", never removes any history; "use these ad-blocking lists", doesn't use any of those lists...). Also, this version (7.0-2.1) is 5 years old and completely discontinued, the "up to date" version is just a Chromium browser and thus not light-weight anymore at all. You could go with Palemoon for lowering power consumption / using less CPU and RAM."

gnome-todo
"It's simple but everything I need from a todo list! Loving the functional design!"
5
torbrowser-launcher
"You need to run Tor Browser Settings first, check "Download over system Tor" and click "Install Tor Browser". THEN it works, and out of the box! And it's the exact same browser version as from their site as well!"
4
com.github.micahflee.torbrowser-launcher
"De Flatpak versie (deze, dus) installeert niet op Mint 20. De versie van hun site draait wel, maar die kan ik niet als standaardbrowser instellen. Hier ben ik dus niet zo blij mee."
2
org.qbittorrent.qBittorrent
"A fast and full-featured bittorrent client with a nice, easy to use and yet very advanced interface! It's been my go-to bittorrent client for years and I have yet to find a better one!"
5
dmz-cursor-theme
"Very clean and formal, though I personally prefer a "cooler" cursor for my personal computer, there is definitely nothing wrong with this as a standard! It's got a solid MS Windows feel to it!"
4
moblin-cursor-theme
"It's a black cursor with an almost cartoony thick white outline which is... Very visible, I guess..?"
3
breeze-cursor-theme
"Nice, clean and not as shiny as the Oxygen cursors! Also relatively light on storage size!"
5
xcursor-themes
"Handhelds is obviously for handhelds, since it's too small for my screen to see. Redglass and Whiteglass are probably not really my type to be honest, and not very visible either if you have vision issues."
3
sublime-text
"Severely out of date; 33 pushes (1> year) on 2018.06.23 || EDIT it's fully up to date on 2018.08.02, but I'd remain cautious"
2
qbittorrent
"At the time of writing, this is version 4.0.3 which is several months out of date!! Version 4.1.1 was already up by now, use the flatpak one if you're on Mint or download from the official website, otherwise you could be at a great secuirity risk!"

workrave
"A 10 minute break every 50 minutes keeps my mind clear and focussed; technically I spent less minutes working but I am doing so much more work than I'd have otherwise! ... I also like how it tells me to pretend that I'm an airplane, and to stare into darkness!"
5
redshift
"Functions perfectly, super-low on resources, able to set both day and night temperatures and brightness, by location, no snoops... What more could anyone want?"
5
whatsapp-desktop
"I dislike WhatsApp itself, but this app is really good; it can even give me my phone info and it stays in the tray after closing it while using Mint's native notifications... It's actually much, much better than the real Windows app."
4
ttf-mscorefonts-installer
"Must have, for web browsing as well as office application usage"
5
spotify-client
"Perfect funtionality, updates with Mint's Update Manager, Windows should have this version too!"
5
xbomb
"Triangle MineSweeper is something that anyone who loves the genre should try at least once! (also I freaking love hexes!!)"
5
gnomine
"Everything gnome-mines is, but uglier"
3
gnome-mines
"Everything MineSweeper needs to be, along with fair starts and a UI that goes with your Cinnamon Theme!"
5
numix-icon-theme
"Modern looking theme, I especially like the Shine and Square subthemes!"
4
oneko
"Cat. Mouse. Freaking genius!"
5
numix-gtk-theme
"Thanks for adding the Numix GTK theme, but where is the icon theme?! Will update to 5/5 as soon as the icon theme is added!"
2
oxygen-cursor-theme
"A bit too shiny for me, but much much better than the default Aidawata!"
4
aseprite
"Yes the program is amazing, this package just isn't. First off, this is an older version (1.0.9 and not being updated, current actual release is 1.2.6 on their website and being updated even for Linux). Secondly, for some reason I experience mouse lag in this version, while I don't experience that in the official trial of 1.2.6"
3
com.discordapp.Discord
"Works fluid, cross platform, exellent quality audio (at least for me as a hearing impaired person), and it even keeps its Mint version up to date! Awesome, just awesome!"
5
synaptic
"Mint Software Manager beats this one far and wide ;-)"
2
p7zip
"This doesn't support all the file types, while P7zip-full does... Why is this package even present then?!"
1
p7zip-full
"Supports all the files, integrates with the already-existing File Roller in Mint!"
5
keepass2
"This one works with no difficulties (looking at the KeePassX package!), and seems to be the exact same one from Windows. Up-todate, no issues, not missing any functionality, although the GUI looks somewhat outdated."
4
keepassx
"You're better off using this one: https://sourceforge.net/p/keepass/discussion/329220/thread/17d1bd26/"
2
supertuxkart
"The controls are unresponsive, the game looks uglier than Morrowind, while managing to take up more resources than Tekken 7! What kind of a joke is this?! By no exaggeration, better games have been made by 15 years olds!"
1
wesnoth
"A deep and intruiging turn based strategic rpg, my only wish is that it could be played on a handheld but the game itself remains one of my favourites!"
4
minitube
"Doesn't seem to do anything"
1
thunderbird
"Feature rich with great add-ons!"
4
gparted
"Windows needs this!"
5
firefox
"About as fast as its competitors, but has some really unique add-ons that I never want to lose"
4
vlc
"Hands down the best video player on any system! It's even got a terminal-mode!!"
5
gimp
"The functionality reminds me of Photoshop though the accesability reminds me of a text-based adventure game..."
3
gthumb
"Easy navigation of images, great tools, easy access to them via the GUI buttons! Hands down best image viewer on Linux!"
5
xviewer
"A quick and simple image viewer, much like IrfanView!"
4
steam:i386
"It's the same, updated and fully featured, thing on Windows. It's got more games for Linux than GOG or any other platform and more coming (becuase Valve is pushing Linux gaming through SteamOS; Debian with drivers and Steam pre-installed) which is really neat!"
