I'm thinking about migrating to Fedora, but I'm not a big fan of Gnome3 so I'm thinking about using their Cinnamon spin. I've read in the past arguments whether or not Linux Mint is as secure as other distros, so I had a question:
Is it possible for the Cinnamon DE to bring any "security problems" to the Fedora operating system, and actually degrade Fedora's security? And, is this the case in general? Are you better off just using the default environment from a security standpoint, or does using an environment you install yourself not really alter the security of Linux?
FWIW, I'm pretty new to Linux so I'm exploring the different options I have. I've also started to take my security more seriously (partially what prompted me to move towards Linux), and I had a hard time finding a good answer to this question. Hopefully someone can help!
