    Anyway... while these girls have their girly fight over semantics and interpretation...

    Cinnamon is just getting better and better. I like gnome3 but parts of it are just... Cinnamon takes the flashy parts of gnome3 and bolts a more "traditional desktop" over it while still having some of the functionality of gnome3

    Its a shame you can't have hte 3d effects and play 3D games... gnome3 use to have an issue but they fixed it, cinnamon need to take that fix from mutter and apply it to their 3d effects part
    They still need a convinient means to switch user...

      I bet nobody cares about that crap called os x, so I recommend to stop that bullshit. If it's good for you then good for you, but I don't even look at closed, slow and full of security holes crap.

        I agree that Cinnamon is getting better and better, but Cinnamon is also very much a work in progress. One thing I need is a working calendar app that integrates with Google Calendar and so far Cinnamon calendar is just a calendar. But the functionality will come. Clem has done wonders in writing a replacement shell in just a few months. Cinnamon extensions (and Gnome as well) are now supported by Chrome. I have no doubt the games issue will be fixed as well. The other thing that I find amazing is how fast the other distros have added Cinnamon. It has gone from a Mint thing to a Linux thing in the blink of an eye.

          Could you both just stay on this thread's topic which is simply bashing Gnome Shell?

            Is not the topic of this thread praising Cinnamon?
