Meanwhile, upgrading from LM 17.3 to 18.2 proposes to be a major hassle and a major hassle every new version thereafter.

Would you ...

1. Stay with Mint, upgrade to 18.2 to be able to get the latest software?

2. Go back to Ubuntu 18.04, install Cinnamon DE, and have your Ubuntu "Mintammon" 18.04, upgradable on a regular basis almost automatically?

Don't worry about data; my /home is in its own partition and I am assuming a backup of data and app lists for software I downloaded myself.
none of them, but each to their own
