Linux Mint 19

The hardest part (and it wasn't too hard) was to replace the mdm display manager with lightdm and get rid of mdm. Both Ubuntu 18.04 and Mint 19 now use lightdm - which I prefer anyway. After that it was just a matter of backing up the old system, downloading the upgrade packages and installing the upgrade. About 2500 packages got upgraded. It was similar to a netinstall of Debian.
Everything worked after I rebooted. My hardware is old enough now that things like AMD video cards will work out of the box.

Even with new hardware, stuff should work out of the box on most distros.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984
