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?"

Mint diverges from Ubuntu

I knew it was only a matter of time before Mint diverged from Ubuntu, even though their original pitch was that Mint was just Ubuntu with the codecs and other missing software filled in.

It will be interesting to see if in the future Mint continues to make more careful, wiser choices than Ubuntu.
