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 think the lesson should be:
when you are doing something very new, don't force it on everyone, make it optional.

Keep the old stuff in a working state, GNOME 3 fallback isn't GNOME 2 for example.
