Anyone else thinking that they should take some inspiration from GNOME 2 again?

If you're into Gnome 2 you could always take a look at Cinnamon. Not a fan of Gnome in general myself but it's a fork of Gnome Shell that feels like Gnome 2, adds some new features (without Gnome 3's WTF factor), new menu, etc.

According webup8 you have to add the Gnome PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Worked like a treat! (Y)

I know about Cinnamon, I considered it, but I'm still on Ubuntu 12.04 and THAT I actually like, because it at least still has got Close, Maximize and Minimize LOL

What, you're kidding right?

And why do people associate cinnamin with gnome2? MATE is the gnome2 continuation, cinnamin is some gnome3 thing.

Never liked Gnome. Prefer KDE or XFCE. Usually use XFCE myself.

Two questions:
1. Is it correct Ubuntu 12.10 beta 2 is being released today?
2. Will I be able to install Gnome 3.6 onto it including Nautilus 3.6?


The second beta release of Ubuntu 12.10 has been made available for download. It arrives ahead of Ubuntu 12.10′s final release in just over 2 weeks time.

Here is a download on OMG Ubuntu.

Because cinnamon provides a gnome-2 like experience using gnome 3 technology. Cinnamon has a fully customizable panel/applets like gnome 2.
