Started off using Mint 12.

I work on some the development of Mint/Cinnamon, and mostly in python/javascript/java.

Software reviews
Software Score
org.stellarium.Stellarium
"An amazing app to find the position of planets, stars etc. One of the most high quality OSS apps out there, glad it's on flatpak."

org.gnome.Eolie
"Looks nice, clean interface, too bad it doesn't seem to have great hardware acceleration "
3
gnome-weather
"Forcast doesn't load for my Canadian location, and the interface is laggy on my hidpi screen, just as I remember it being a few years ago"

pia-manager
"Simple and works, but maybe a bit to simple, it doesn't save your login information, which makes it annoying to change the location "

timeshift
"Great tool, fairly easy to use, and a good thing to keep your system safe"

"It's funny this says "Chrome guzzling up all your RAM" because this is an Electron App which is basically another instance of chrome running using 100s of MB of RAM. This is actually worse than just using chrome as is doesn't have Hardware acceleration, meaning its laggy as heck on a 4K screen. Only redeeming quality is that it has neat color customization."

org.gnome.Weather
"Looks nice, but under Cinnamon it has a very low FPS when doing animation and interacting with things"
3
org.gnome.Maps
"Great maps/direction app especially if you want to avoid Google Maps"
5
com.github.dahenson.agenda
"Really great simple app for todo lists/agendas"
5
org.gnome.Games
"Handy app for putting all of your games in one place, but the interface feels clunky, and it lacks a lot of configuration that something like retroarch has"
3
dconf-editor
"If you're from windows, think of this as the Linux version of Regedit"

"Great worms like clone, really polished, and a lot of content."

tomahawk
"Great application for playing music from Soundcloud, to make it properly work, you need to first install phonon-backend-vlc, then remove phonon-backend-gstreamer"

clementine
"I...I Think I am in love, sorry Banshee"
5
unetbootin
"Its a must install for me, but it looks ugly under GTK as it uses QT"
