At the moment, there are people who would like to see the Linux Mint project come to an end.
To be most straightforward with you, I hate it when a distribution of Linux goes into oblivion.
On Tuesday, the 21st of May, 2019, the developers of Antergos mentioned via a blog post of theirs, that they would be ending the Antergos Linux project (The hearts of the people who used that distribution of Linux was broken that day).
In reality, there is a huge number of Linux distributions out there (And, a percentage of them will meet their untimely demise).
However, in regards to Linux Mint, I believe that it would be around for a very long time (In May 2019, the Linux Mint team received $24,149.00 in donations from 868 people; which is proof that there are people who love Linux Mint and would like to see it prosper).
I view Linux Mint as a wonderful distribution of Linux and I am going to tell you the reasons why.
