Slightly random query. I currently have kernel 4.15.0-50 installed as of
a Mint update last night - that seems to be the latest Mint have
released - supported until April 2023. However I have more recent
kernels - not installed - which list /shorter/ support dates, e.g.
4.18.0-20 supported until August this year, and 18.104.22.168 supported until
February next year.
Have the newer ones not been tested by Mint so their support dates are
generic? Would there be any hazard in installing, for instance, the 5.*
kernel? I suppose answering my own question the answer is that Mint have
not tested it so that's a hazard. Am I right?
