Slightly, there are not many change on the desktop. It has MATE version 1.18 which is the latest stable version available.
Linux Mint 18.3 comes with a brand new Software Manager.
Personally I love the look of the new Software Manager. Well, its not quite important but it is easier to use.
Linux Mint 18.3 is a great Linux distribution. It is based on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus LTS. With many features in this release, we recommend to upgrade to this release when the final version is released.
