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?"

This is the only way we can make Linux succeed

Succeed at what exactly? For me Linux is the ultimate success story, fit's my needs to a tee ;)

I don't use gnome, haven't for 10 years or KDE either.

I laugh at all this gnome whining, everyone knew they were morons years ago. You have so much choice with linux to put together a functional, working, ultimate, desktop, it's not funny.

I'm only a dumb chippy and I can do it, what's wrong with all the folks that whine constantly?

The system I'm typing this from is Debian Wheezy upgraded from Squeeze, upgraded from Lenny, upgraded from... Well you get the picture, it's over 7 years old and does anything I want.

Choose a distro that lets you roll over and a window manager that is flexible enough to do what you need and just keep on growing with the system as you go. It's not hard and you avoid idiots forcing crap on you that just makes life difficult, it's too easy with a bit of lateral thinking!
