You're right actually, not sure where I got 20.03 from
I've noticed some small improvements, nothing massive but there really isn't much left to be done with Mint that I can really see, other than the standard universal linux improvements everybody wants on every distro
The main things I've noticed are some bug fixes, big one for me being random hitching in youtube videos on integrated graphics is gone now as well as the bug that caused the contents of your desktop to be briefly visible before the lock screen loaded when opening the lid of a laptop Apart from that its better power and heat management (think this is the new Kernel more than anything mint specific), Warpinator, which is seriously incredibly satisfying to try and watch it actually work the first time with no fucking about, and some surface polish, the standard file manager is faster feeling now, Package Manager feels less clunky, quick theming options are in the welcome widget now which is tiny but nice and saves a whopping 2 minutes on going into a menu and doing it yourself etc.
Why do you think its moving towards touchscreen and mac like elements?
It feels essentially like a Windows 7 style DE but linuxed to me, and that's what I wanted and more or less what I think their mission statement actually was, deliver a competent, reliable desktop with minimal bullshit.
I've always found context menu style DE's awful with touch, don't understand why anyone would want a small button in the corner of the screen to summon a context menu designed around a kb+m instead of a unity/android style pull out drawer
Its very boring, but its more competently boring and useable for the average person than anything else I can think of save maybe Manjaro KDE and that's why I like it, it doesn't feel like a project like some of the other distros do
