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've installed Lisa on my "test box" and now on my main computer: so far so good, didn't have a single crash. Thom, you write that

It's slow, often unresponsive, and I've even had several components - both GNOME 3 and MSGE - crash.

I know this might sound like another "works for me!" comment, but did you install and update it? I just did that (about 190mb to download), plus installed the proprietary nVidia driver, and it surely isn't slow even on my oldish test box. Also I've been adding Gnome Shell extensions and not a single crash (so far).

Now my only problem is that I don't like green themes ;)
