Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

I'm using it and loving it since the RC, it is stable, fast and memory friendly, I must confess I disabled all the extensions to get the vanilla GNOME-Shell experience.

I love Linux, I love Debian based distros, I love the GNOME-Shell and I love Mint.

If you're just using GNOME Shell without the Mate extensions, you should consider using Ubuntu with GNOME Shell. That's basically what you're using anyway.

I did, but Ubuntu doesn't install the Noveou drivers, the only way to get effects with it is installing the proprietary NVidia drivers, with Mint, detects and install Noveou drivers with effects out of the box.
