@machetebadger @angristan Personally, I disagree. I use Mint because it doesn't set all updates for installation by default, while Ubuntu et al. only allow to disable kernel updates. Fact is many things are too risky to update + break stuff. Also LM guarantees a long support period. Mainline Ub has long support too, but the same can't be said for the DE derivatives. Meanwhile I can still use LM 18.3 (based on U 16.04) until 2021. And I use MATE, so LM isn't equivalent to Cinammon for everyone.
@eal @angristan If they did base their work on an existing project instead of rewriting stuff from scratch (not-invented-here syndrome) Fluent terminal (https://github.com/felixse/FluentTerminal) most probably, as that one has the pseudo-transparency effect that appears in the screenshots in both the Verge article and the original Microsoft blogpost (https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/introducing-windows-terminal/), and it also uses UWP.
