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?"

Dual head support

I actually like Gnome3 but dual head support is massively broken. I can't even take screen shots anymore (although it works fine with gimp). By default only the primary display is multi-desktop, what is this? Crazy.

The other thing that I think must be fixed is the thing where desktops are always vertical and arranged automatically. Please make it an option for me to manage my desktops like I used to: in a grid, with a fixed number and arrangement.

Yes, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm so ashamed! I am a power desktop user and have lots of stuff open at once! I admit it! But please let me have my power-desktop management back!
