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 mean GNOME3 almost got it right will fallback, a lot actually works.

It just needs more polishing so people who are used to GNOME2 actually want to use it.

Then people can try out GNOME3 and the community can make clear what they like and don't like so it can be explained or changed, maybe an option added in the next update/upgrade.

KDE4, I think, didn't even have the fallback.

You have to remember with GNOME3/KDE4 you are doing 2 big changes: Interface and hardware supported.
