...and suprisingly it's really rock solid and a really great alternative to Xfce, that i've used in various Linux distributions over the years.
I installed it a month or two ago and like it a lot. I was trying to go all Plasma, but it's a mess regarding my settings in make.conf. All Plasma, QT and so on is disabled but changing to Cinnamon just went flawless. Couldn't be happier.

I'm glad your enjoying Cinnamon. I've always used a window manager instead of a desktop environment. Is there a good reason to switch?

I used i3 before, but for my workflow for image processing i find it easier with a DE. It's just a matter of taste i assume. Xfce is great as well but Cinnamon feels more modern or how i should put it.
