currently I'm using Linux Mint Cinnamon. Is there a way to show a listing of favorite apps in the menu of linux mint Cinnamon? Or if this is not possible, what other versions of Linux have this feature showing a quick selection of favorite apps in the start menu?

This has nothing to do with which Linux you have installed, it depends on which desktop environment you use and which menu app. You can install different desktop environments in the same Linux, no need to change distribution.

That said, cinnamon already has the functionality you're looking for. There is a vertical bar on the left hand side of the menu that has your favorite programs:

To add programs to the favorites, just select them from the menu and drag their icon into the favorites bar.

Opensuse has this option of adding a program to main start menu.

Download the latest version from here-http://software.opensuse.org/123/en
