Recently, I tried to find out the alternatives of how to make my Linux Mint 19 (Tara) Cinnamon Edition to be more lightweight. There are some options such as installing the light Desktop Environment (DE) such as Xfce, LXDE, or LXQt. Those DEs are bundled with their specific applications such as file managers, text editors, etc. which will also be installed.
