Linux Mint 12 Gnome 3 covers a 'secret'... It's exposed here: CINNAMON. Linux Mint attempts to bring well-known and favored Gnome 2 characteristics to the new GNOME 3 desktop environment. Until now Cinnamon (in the Mint 12 Software Manager!) is a development, but one might guess that this is the basis of the Linux Mint 13 version, expected Spring 2012. Development goes so quickly that I couldn't show the new Overview screen from Version 1.1.2 with Themes as a new chapter! You must see and test this...

It distinguishes itself by preventing cluttering of Extensions, what we see now in Gnome 3 shell. The look and feel is more familiar and intuitive. Several aspects will be changed in due course, various shortcomings of Gnome 3 shell ironed out. The current Cinnamon base is FAST and very comfortable to use. Yet, it still is experimental - so don't expect too much from it now.

CINNAMON is a great way to get accustomed to the Gnome 3 desktop world, with flexibility to tune many details to your liking. Yes, you'll need a compositing graphics card for best results, but even on older boxes this can work. Linux Mint 12 is highly recommended for its versatility and vast software base. It can be downloaded freely from www.linuxmint.com. A Must-Have!

Often asked: the music is free and from Adam Szabo - One Day - several mixes here on YouTube! Just copy his name and the title to find him.
