A Minty Fresh Take On Gnome 3
A while back I gave Gnome 3 a whirl. I personally have no complaints about how it is put together and don’t mind using extensions because it gives the ‘build it how you want it’ feel. Now Mint 12 has been released. Mint has given Gnome interface a major overhaul and really shows what can be done with Gnome 3 and extensions. I gotta say I am personally quite impressed with it overall. Gnome 3 still stays out of the way, you have the options that come packed into the Gnome-Tweak-Tool, to turn on or off things as you like.
Overall it’s clean, and doesn’t have a heavy feel to it. I did get a comment from a Windows user that it had a certain appeal that would actually make it easier for them to switch from Windows to Linux.
So if you haven’t tried the newest Mint and have been a bit bothered by the initial feel of Gnome 3. I suggest give it a go and see how you like it.
