I tend to update my systems every few months including kernel updates and then reboot them so they are booted into the lasted kernel. It would be fun use live kernel patching but in the en it's nice to know when your system does get a reboot that it comes back up again, while if your system has an update of over one year you can't be sure that it will boot properly after a reboot and it won't have the latest kernel security patches.I have some servers with more uptime than some of the installation dates, but I don't think those are fair comparisons.
Some of my servers have customers on them, or at least other people to whom I am beholden. They're very upset with downtime. I usually schedule it ahead of time, make sure everyone knows, and then do as much work as I can and reboot the production server. I tend to do a lot of testing ahead of time, 'cause I'm really not the greatest admin out there.I tend to update my systems every few months including kernel updates and then reboot them so they are booted into the lasted kernel.
I work for a hospital and ever since I started working there I was taught by the senior sysadmins that security is more important than uptime, although when we do system maintenance it's announced ahead of time and in an evening maintenance window in the evening for production.Some of my servers have customers on them, or at least other people to whom I am beholden.

It looks like it!Is everyone going to post the install date of their system now?
If I hadn't gone to LXQt after LMDE got nixed in Lubuntu, I'd have probably gone to Cinnamon. I really like Cinnamon, especially with the desklets and applets. I've had a great experience with LMDE and can't think of anything but good things to say about it.It's OK and it's stable.
It doesn't seem all that heavy, but I have very modern hardware with ample resources.I prefer Xfce over Cinnamon as Cinnamon is to resource hungry for my old Frankenstein boxes.
