Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10 Alpha 2 Available For Download

A second Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10 alpha version has been made available for download today.

The Ubuntu GNOME Remix is a community project lead by Jeremy Bicha which aims to create a pure GNOME 3 desktop experience built with packages from the official Ubuntu repositories.

The second alpha ships with GNOME 3.5.91 (GNOME 3.6 beta), with a few older packages like Nautilus 3.4.2 which was downgraded because of the many features removed from the latest 3.5.x versions.

And of course, there’s also GDM 3.5.91 and GNOME Shell 3.5.91 which comes with a cool new lock screen. The Classic GNOME session is included as well, but GNOME Shell is used by default if the hardware supports it, and most hardware should be able to run it since the latest GNOME Shell included in Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10 supports software rendering.
