Linux Mint 12 ‘Lisa’ to Come with a Customized Gnome 3 Desktop

[ Thanks to Dart for this link. ]

Linux Mint 12 ‘Lisa’ will come with its own customized
desktop and it will be based on Gnome 3. The core desktop will be
based on a series of Gnome Shell extensions called “MGSE” (Mint
Gnome Shell Extensions) that will provide a layer on top of Gnome
3.

MGSE also includes additional extensions such as a media player
indicator, and multiple enhancements to Gnome 3. Thus Linux Mint 12
will be more like a hybrid desktop balancing traditional desktop
and new modern technologies.

Also Gnome 2 fork MATE can also make it to the live Linux Mint
DVD if all the remaining integration issues are ironed out in time,
thus providing users a side by side experience of both Gnome 2 and
Gnome 3.
