Clement Lefebvre, lead developer of Linux Mint project leader yy, just announced through the official blog two facts irrelevant but that surely like to know users of this distribution: Linux Mint 16 will codename “ Petra ” and reach the end of November in four editions: Cinnamon, MATE, KDE and Xfce.
What is special about this information? Nothing, really. As we say, are very relevant data yet point to that will be a key moment for which supposedly is the second distribution GNU / Linux market in number of users.
key moment to which we refer is divorce-Cinnamon Linux Mint and GNOME 3. “ E n Cinnamon GNOME 2.0 will not be running at all ” Lefebvre said a few dates, and although it is best not to anticipate events (up how can dispense entirely GNOME? For not to mention that there is MATE … although he refers to GNOME 3), promises to get interesting things.
The crux of the matter as we find reflected in the latest survey we did in MuyLinux asking about your favorite desktop. Not that these data represent “truth” without trace of mistake, that of course, but it does point to a direction that was seen coming for some time. As you recall, was the desktop KDE voted with a significant difference in their favor, but adding interfaces that use GNOME 3 , Unity, Linux Mint and GNOME Shell itself, besides being the first two the most popular Linux distros, KDE reached comfortably outperform.
it seems that will happen
it seems that will happen? Ubuntu and Unity are on track to your own desktop, based on Qt, and the same could be said of Cinnamon, although in this case it is not clear that they will leave the GTK +. Two blows that GNOME will notice.
