Prefer GNOME Shell? Download Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10

Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10 has been released! Ubuntu GNOME Remix, a Linux distribution which aims to become an official Ubuntu flavour, uses GNOME Shell as the default "shell" and tries to provide a "mostly pure GNOME desktop experience built from the Ubuntu repositories". As you would expect, Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10 tries to offer most of the GNOME 3.6 applications: Web (Epiphany) 3.6, Evolution 3.6, Gedit 3.6, etc. But there are some packages which aren't updated to version 3.6: Aisleriot, Nautilus, System Settings, and Totem. That's because Ubuntu itself uses older versions of these apps, so Ubuntu GNOME Remix is stuck with them as well. But you can update Nautilus or Totem to version 3.6 by using the GNOME3 Team PPA.
