Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

I kept with MATE, as I was thinking about Gnome 3 again being a tablet interface.

Why do you think of Gnome 3 as a tablet interface? I use it primarily on a desktop machine with a large screen, and it works great there.

However I can't imagine it being very well suited to small screens, and don't believe it was ever designed for that purpose. The default theme is just too inefficient of space to ever be usable on a system where pixels are a precious resource - it's certainly not practical on my 1024x600 netbook screen.
