I've been an avid Mint user for at least the past 3 years, and still love the distro and would still definitely recommend it to new users. Or to anyone I suppose. But having been running Fedora 27 one one of my laptops and on a laptop at work in a VM, I am ready to make the switch to it on my primary machine. I created a text file with a command to install a dozen or so programs I want on any fresh install. I'd like to turn it into a script so that's the next thing I need to learn. So far it seems like dnf is easier to use than apt. Less verbiage. At least what I've been using the cli for.
