The best news: The new update system in Mint 18.3 is different and MUCH better! It starts with a set of options one can select from, for basic, regular and advanced users, and then takes one to several categories of updates that one can work through and choose to install or not, as the case may be. I did security and maintenance categories, and then, once that was done, went in for the kernel update. I never liked the old uniform updates system -- having choices is much better. Overall the new version of Mint functions very well. The one catch, as always, is Youtube videos. I had to lower the quality to 480p for smooth movement, since 720p just did not work well (the sound is fine, but the video halts for lengths of time). But for a ten-year-old machine, this is not bad at all. And the Flexview screen is brilliant as ever!
