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.

In Clem's defense he had to make a choice with Gnome. Gnome 2 has forked and he's given you the option to choose or go with Gnome 3. They've tried their hardest to make sense of the phone interface that Gnome 3 is focusing on which is Mint extensions. You can choose that or go with the Gnome 2 fork of Mate. Basically he's attempting to polish a "Turd" and has honestly done a decent job.

Me personally I've been using the Mint Debian edition with Gnome 2 and really like it, much better than the Ubuntu flavor.
