    A snippet from Linux Mint Blog

    Sounds nice

    I wonder how it's gonna look. Hope not too cluttered. If Linux becomes bloated we're doomed :wtf:

    Another snippet:

    Well let's see then. You can read more here:

    Oh gawd... I am afraid that if I wish to continue to use Mint I will have to switch to the LXDE version of it, as GNOME based systems are getting my least favourite distros because of the weird stuff they are seeming to make out of it (though Mint promises some kind of a hybrid so lets hope that that works out well enough).

    I'm thinking about trying mint on another drive for my HTPC. I've kind of been enjoying ubuntu 11.10 with unity, because it is such a nice simple interface that changes as I use it.

    Does mint use gnome for default shell? A lot of people are HATING unity, and switching back to gnome 2...

    Linux mint is also starting to become an ubuntu like this time and it might need more RAM in the next development. They should have stick to gnome2

    I am still on 11 lol. No point in upgrading if I want to keep it as it is as long as I am still working on my Gentoo installation (which works, but still misses some programs and still needs some customisation of the looks).
