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 used Ubuntu from 5.04 all the way to the point when 11.10 was released. Then I switched to LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) and couldn't be happier. Gnome 2.x is still here (and I was told will stay here for a few more months) and it's much more responsive than Ubuntu 11.04 (on Gnome 2.x, I couldn't stand Unity for more than a few hours).

I'll just waiting till all the Gnome 3 drama settles and we're offered something usable solution (MGSE sounds like it might be the solution, but I surely don't want to use it before it matures a bit).
