Linux Mint 12 to Blend GNOMEs 2 & 3 266

Posted by samzenpus

dartttt writes "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."

    I herd you like linux on the desktop, so I put an unprecedented number of dubiously thought out desktops on your linux.

    Unfortunately, that makes about as much sense as the current state of gnome and gnome-derived desktops...

    Mint is, however LMDE isn't. I'm not sure how long Mint is going to remain around, seeing as it seems to be diverging from Ubuntu as it becomes more and more obvious that Canonical is batshit insane. At some point it's probably going to be less work for mint to just standardize itself around the Debian Edition.
