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 gave it a go last night and besides it being the familiar Mint set of apps that I like in an initial desktop I couldn't help how I reacted to what they did with Gnome 3.

I felt like Jay in Dogma. "What's this? Why is this here? What the heck is this for? Why is it doing that, what good does this do anything?"

I can appreciate what the Mint team has done to make what they feel is the best they can do with Gnome 3 and I hope it's a success.

Meanwhile I'm reconsidering going back to something like Fluxbox or Openbox.
