Ubuntu 12.10 Cinnamon vs Mint 14 Cinnamon
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2013
I'm switching from a Mac to Linux and am still in doubt as to which flavour I'm going to be using.
Ubuntu seemed like the obvious choice but after trying out several distros (many of which Ubuntu based) I decided that Mint Cinnamon was going to be it.
Until I found out you can install the Cinnamon desktop on ubuntu. Which I tried.
Hmm. It looks equally nice as it does on Mint but still, I've got the impression it runs just that tiny bit better on Mint (i.e. more fluid - and I tend to ditch something at the first sign of even the slightest hint of 'jerkyness').
Ubuntu would seem like the logical step when coming from a Mac : it's the most popular distro out there and the Unity interface in some ways is very similar to OS X. But, I have to say, I 'dislike' Unity with a passion (not going to use the word 'hate', seems a bit too strong - it was OK I guess in 12.04, terribly slow in 12.10). Mint Cinnamon touched me right away (although I'm currently trying out OpenSuse 12.3 KDE and I must

Linux Mint Cinnamon vs. Elementary Pantheon
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2012
Many people are very excited about Linux Mint's Cinnamon. Personally I find it a step back in almost every single way. It looks cluttered, has less customization than gnome2 (or xfce, or kde4, or any other popular non-gnome) and doesn't really have anything special. Unity, whether you like it or not (I do) is definitely different than the standard Linux desktop, Gnome Shell is a similar story. Many people are complaining that these new gnome3 shells, interfaces and forks are plainly bad. So, they think cinnamon will be better with its more classic looks. But I wish people would look at the Elementary Team's Pantheon environment. It is lean, looks very functional, has a nice and good-looking (even if you think it is mac-ish) design and is completely modular! And that is why I am so excited about it. By default it has function and form but you can change and swap out anything you want.
Here is a summery of what the next Elementary OS will be:
Does Ubuntu 13.04 + Cinnamon = Linux Mint?

I know Mint is built upon Ubuntu. So, if you take Ubuntu 13.04 and add Cinnamon, is that the same as Linux Mint or is there more to Mint then just Cinnamon?
Unity vs GNOME 3 vs GNOME Classic vs Cinnamon
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 2, 2012
Which better? I means the lesser memory consumption.
By the way, in my Ubuntu 12.04:
When I clicked Firefox (FF)'s Icon, Firefox's window will show-up.
And if I download a file, a download's window will show-up.
But if I minimize the FF's window, I unable to maximize back again by clicking FF's Icon.
I'd tried to minimize the download's window in order for having my FF's window back. But it cannot. The window, which will be show up when I click the FF's Icon is download's window only.
So, I choose a file, which downloaded => right-click => go to Download page.
And the FF's window will show up again.
Is this normal?
If not, how can it be fixed?
Ubuntu LTS vs other distro & Unity vs Cinnamon
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 21, 2013
I have two issues I would like to address. So here goes.
One. LTS vs other. As a new user, which should I get .. LTS or a newer release?. I basically understand that LTS is "long term" and general is with a more stable distro. I did try Ubuntu 12.04 for a while but I didn't like the Unity desktop. And Gnome was ok for a while. I am wondering if I should go to the newest release of Ubuntu.
Two. Cinnamon. I see that, I guess, Cinnamon can be used in Ubuntu. Does Cinnamon replace the Unity desktop environment?
Sorry if my queries are a bit too general.
Thanks ahead of time.
Cinnamon vs Mate opinions
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 14, 2012
I have done several installs of LM13 Maya on Cinnamon, but am very interested in reading Ubuntu and Linux Mint users' perspectives on Mate. I have tried Cinnamon on Precise and had too many issues with visual artifacts on the screen and such.
Cinnamon Choice Ubuntu or Linux Mint?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2012
I have been playing with Cinnamon on Linux Mint 12 in parallel w/ my production 11.04. I have decided Cinnamon is pretty good for me. However should I install Ubuntu 12.04 and cinnamon via PPA or wait a bit and install the LinuxMint equivalent of 12.04 with Cinnamon. I am leaning towards Ubuntu 12.04 with the PPA. It seems like maintenance and documentation might be better and more timely. Any opinions?

[SOLVED] LibreOffice crashing in Ubuntu 12.04 (with Cinnamon)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 2, 2012
I am using Cinnamon in Ubuntu 12.04 and everything works absolutely perfectly apart from LibreOffice which keeps crashing.
I removed LO completely and then installed OpenOffice.
OO is installed but I cannot get it to run.
I then use: Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > System.
“Show the run command prompt” is disabled.
I try to enable it using Alt+F2 but I then get a message that the run command is not recognised. Very strange.
I have temporarily reinstalled LO. Whilst it does not crash quite so often, there is still a bug somewhere.
I do appreciate that LO and OO should not be run together.
How do I run OO with LO removed?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
