Since their 19.1 release, Linuxmint's Cinnamon edition ships with an updated default configuration of the panel which they call the 'modern style'.
The main difference is the introduction of the grouped window list applet instead of the conventional list, where every individual window had its separate entry in the panel.
Also their panel is now higher and icons on the left side are larger than on the right side.
Since there have been some requests to mirror this setup in the Manjaro-Cinnamon edition I would like to find out how the sentiment among Cinnamon users in our community is about this.
As a third option I am considering to keep the traditional window list (which still is my personal preference) but adopt the taller panel and bigger icons, since I do agree this looks more up-to-date for some reason.
Here's how the 'modern' style would look like:
and this is what we used to have:
- keep 'traditional style'
- introduce 'modern style'
- use taller panel/icons but keep regular window list
