Linux Mint 12 “Lisa”: GNOME, deep in a dream

Filed under
Linux

Is it melodramatic to say that Linux Mint 12 has been the most anticipated distribution of the year? Maybe, maybe not. Probably. But I was certainly looking forward to it: even more so when I learned about Mint’s proposed reworking of the GNOME Shell. So I installed the release candidate on three computers, and I have the final on two of them.

I don’t know what I was expecting, but this wasn’t it. That’s not a complaint; I really didn’t have any idea what it would be like. I was greeted with a screen that looks suspiciously, reassuringly Minty. There is the famous Mint Menu click-me in the lower left corner: smaller than usual, but right where I expected it. There is a taskbar atop the screen, too. To the right is the notifications and a truncated date. And my name, even; wow, all the people who install Linux Mint will see me up there; what great publicity!
