Linux Mint 13 – Gets Back to Basics

Hi Everyone

Well finally Linux Mint 13 has done an about-face and decided to go back to the original Desktop foundation.
Hooray is all I can say. It’s not that I don’t like change. I love a streamlined desktop with all the buttons handy and not have to dig and search for them.
I want my desktop slick and fast.

Gnome 3 while quite beautiful seemed bogged down and  memory hungry by comparison to it’s predecessor.

Here’s a great article on the PCLinuxOS Magazine site.

For those of you interested have a look at what the Gurus at  PC World have to say.
More reading here from another perspective.
Gnome 3 This is the end it seems.

If you want to know more about Linux Mint 13 Maya I haven’t tried 13 to date. (will be very soon).

Okay now I’ll be honest, I love to build and tinker with various hardware & software. Currently I’m running Linux Mint 11 & 12 in all blends on various PCs & laptops. Along with my new project building my Dream HTPC unit.

I plan to upgrade to Mint 13 has long-term ongoing support.
I’m happy to hear that.  Well I’m off to experiment 🙂

Have fun.

Cheers

I have been using Linux Mint 11 KDE for the last 6 months as a true replacement for Windows.
Can’t wait to try this one out.
Can reside side by side with your Windblows or tun it from a Live DVD
