"Linux Mint 13 will feature an entirely new user interface,
called Cinnamon. Earlier this week, the Linux Mint developers
released a version of the shell. Previous editions of Linux Mint
used a standard version of the Gnome environment.
"'We're hoping [Cinnamon] will seduce most Linux Mint users,
whether they're coming from Gnome 2, Gnome Shell or other
desktops,' said Linux Mint creator and lead developer Clement
"In a world where the interfaces of desktop operating systems
are increasingly streamlined, Cinnamon appears to be quite a
conservative design, not surprising given the goals of the Linux
Mint project. "
