Linux When GNOME did its version 3 and Ubuntu came up with Unity, the popularity of Linux Mint sky-rocketed, because they stuck with GNOME 2.32. The Mint team has been working on their next version for a while now, and today, they first unveiled what they're working on. There's good news - the team is working on making GNOME 3 likeable. Their question for this release: "How do we make people like Gnome 3? And what do we provide as an alternative to those who still do not want to change?"

A better question might be "If there are people who refuse to use any Linux DE but Gnome 2 for the rest of their lives, how can we gently tell them to shove off back to Windows XP?".

Gnome Shell is much better than Gnome 2. Unity is of about the same quality. If people are resistant to change in Linux, then Linux definitely isn't the operating system for them.
