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 never thought I'd say this, but for the last 3 years I've used nothing but Slackware & Arch Linux and thought I was done with "beginner" distros, but I actually might install Mint on my desktop. I got Arch + Openbox on my laptop and that's staying there (no reason to switch that out), but I do miss a sane Gnome interface and that looks like something I can use! I currently use Mate, and while it's moving along very nicely it just isn't quite there yet.
