Linux When GNOME did its version 3 and Ubuntu came up with Unity, the popularity of Linux Mint sky-rocketed, because they stuck with GNOME 2.32. The Mint team has been working on their next version for a while now, and today, they first unveiled what they're working on. There's good news - the team is working on making GNOME 3 likeable. Their question for this release: "How do we make people like Gnome 3? And what do we provide as an alternative to those who still do not want to change?"

After installin Ubuntu Studio which now uses XFCE I cannot agree, has me pulling a Clarckson at the Mate PPA. https://launchpad.net/~amanas/+archive/mate-desktop *rocking back and forth yelling "COME ON, FASTER!!!" at the screen* just as Jezza does in the hope that the car will magically go faster.

Ubuntu Studio is definitely NOT a plain XFCE experience. God only know what they had put into this clean desktop environment ... Try with Xubuntu, especially LTS version.

Fully agreed! XFCE is super-duper cool! Every version is only better, not more complicated. I love the way they give new features while leaving the layout and look on the same level for you to decide.

Thank you, XFCE team!
