Gnome "Clement Lefebvre, the Linux Mint founder, has started working on a GNOME Shell fork called Cinnamon, which tries to offer a layout similar to GNOME 2, with emphasis on 'making users feel at home and providing them with an easy to use and comfortable desktop experience'. Among the features that we'll probably see in Cinnamon are GNOME2-like notifications and systray icons, option to change the panel position and other panel options like autohide, etc. Some of these features are already available through Mint GNOME Shell Extensions (MGSE), but their functionality is pretty limited."

...well, for starters, to freaking add a menu item, you have to go through about 50 dialogs to create a shortcut, choose an icon, what command to run, this is freaking BS, whereas with Windows 95, at least I could drag an icon to the main menu and it would show up as a menu item.


Very strange comment. All you do is right click and add from menu. Whenever you do an install of an app, it shows up in the menu. Don't get it. This is so simple even real technophobes can do it. Now, how exactly you do that on KDE4? There you really do have to jump through hoops. Gnome3? Life is too short. But Gnome2 its a snap.
