    gnome-shell fallback is a dead-end. I would rather see Ubuntu devs not interested in Unity work on cinnamon/muffin instead.

    Bringing something like Gnome2 will save you from migration to Linux Mint.

    Mate is just a terrible idea.

    What could work is a gnome fallback session with indicator applets ect... and polished up a bit.

    sad days ahead

    It's as if the king and his men went mad and destroyed the castle and countryside. The people are left to rebuild.

    Agreed. Unity is unusable for me. I've managed to get Gnome Shell to handle my workflows, but I'll be giving Mint/Cinnamon a shot on a spare computer in the next few minutes.

    GNOME is the best desktop environment for Linux. I used unity but I didn't like it.
