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?"

I've always liked Mint since I started playing with it off and on a few years ago. It was easy-mode Linux like Ubuntu, but more pleasing to the eye and most default settings were quite sane. It was that magical "Ubuntu but better" so many people were looking for.

For my serious Linux-ing at home I still use Arch; I've grown used to Gnome 3 under it though I wouldn't say I like it. Now though, I may just have to look into using Mint as a main desktop system.
