I read a lot of comparisons but when Mojave just came out. Now they must have fixed most of it
Is it faster or slower than High Sierra? I have an iMac 2017 Radeon graphic card, 3.4 Ghz

If you currently have High Sierra, you could upgrade to Mojave.
I would NOT try Catalina -- too many problems.

You can download Mojave using this link:
Get macOS Mojave

BEFORE you upgrade, I would recommend cloning your HS install to an external drive using either CarbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper. Both are free to download and use for 30 days.
Having a cloned backup makes it EASY to "get back" if you don't like the upgrade or if something goes wrong.

I'm going to try partitioning my disk and install Mojave just there and see how it behaves
I already read the fusion drive will stay put with High Sierra

High Sierra was noticeably faster on my 2015 Macbook Air. I'd stay put for the time being unless you have a reason to upgrade.

Update: I did update to Mojave but using an external ssd (Crucial x8) with a clean install
Slow to start but then it seems faster in all other tasks
Installed the old iTunes 12.6.5.3 : lot of work for just that
but now everything works the way I like it ?

Thanks to everyone for their tips and a special thanks to bogdanw for his precious scripts!
