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?"

I was extremely resistive to the idea of it when it first came out. I loved gnome 2.x. But I decided to give it a shot in FC15 and, I have to say, that other than a few issues related to my graphics card (ATI Mobility FireGL), it runs really really well. It's my new default window manager from here on out.

My brother uses Mint on his netbook that I set up for him and he absolutely loves it. I'm curious to see how he likes the update.
