I took it to the computer guy because the desktop was so borked and no matter what I did it stayed that way. All of the icons were teeny tiny little red boxes and the trash, home and computer icons were huge and they all said ABC on them. Nothing else, just those 3 letters. All seemed well however when you moused over and found a browser. It would open and function normally. But I knew something was wrong.
How's that for a long explanation of saying yes I have the latest one now. It says Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia..hopefully that's the right one. I'm liking it fine. It sucks though that Firefox made its new browser non compatible with so many scripts that I used.
I used Opera now and then for Windows. I didn't even think about it for Linux. Glad to know that it works with Linux..
I don't have a ton of experience with apt, but dnf is pretty simple especially for the basic stuff you will be using it for 99% of the time. For people used to yum (which is what it's a fork of) it's easy to go from yum to dnf. The command options are all the same (or mostly anyway) and one simply replaces the 'yum' command with dnf.
Fedora has a few minor quirks but none of them are close to show-stoppers for me and I've been real happy with it on my laptop.
Wonder why RH has stuck with yum. Seems dnf is tested and true.
I'm pretty sure they are slated to have it in RHEL 8. When RHEL 7 was released it wasn't close to production ready yet. Last I checked they were still behind on some features but nothing major and I'm guessing most of those have been addressed by now.
