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.

Actually, Canonical does have the resources to make Unity good, they seem to lack the time. There's also the compiz piece of the puzzle. They have to work on that too.

One year for a project like that is not enough.

I'm currently on 10.04 but also have a seperate HDD for testing new distros. After a few weeks of XFCEs, KDEs and Gnome3s, I came crawling back to my 10.04 desktop.
