    Themes are great on Linux, however it's complicated going between DE's and versions of DE's. For example gtk2 themes do not work on gtk3. Gtk3 was a bit of a departure from the ability to use images in themes to having basically just a text file and being color based. I did not find the need to put that much effort and know-how into a theme when I was already happy with the themes I was using. My favorite themes are probably the Arc themes. I never felt the desire to switch my theme much at the end of my time using Linux.

    True, 10 years ago I didn't know what Linux was but yes I understand what you mean about how far its come. In the early years it was mostly only for hackers, nowadays anyone with the hardware can easily install and use one of the popular distros. It's generally a user friendly experience.

    I never quite took to cinnamon as it's kind of a gnome3-based desktop. I prefer gnome 2 (MATE).
