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.

Am I the only one who thinks Linux Desktop might actually stand a chance if people kept refining 10.10 (solving the update and break problem, make things better for the developer etc) instead of jerking with new UIs?

Come on! Gnome 2 looks like s**t compared to Mac OS X and Windows 7. It matters especially to new users. Unity looks great and brings Linux desktop back to the game. People commenting here just fail to think like average and new users.
