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.

there's clearly some discontent in Linux desktop land if you have people working on both MATE and http://www.trinitydesktop.org/ , a fork of KDE3. I don't know how well either will be able to continue with original devs off doing their own thing with those fancy new Gnome3 and KDE4 environments, but I wish them luck
