distributions with alternative desktops GNOME GNOME Shell and after elementary OS have to talk about Linux Mint and Cinnamon , who yesterday also had the latest version, after more than seven months development.
Changes in Cinnamon
1.8? Quite a lot, judging by the extensive release announcement, which any interested party should lose because many screenshot, you both like. Even so, we will make a summary the juiciest :
started by Nemo File Browser . The fork of Nautilus continues to improve and now integrates better with the rest of the desktop, receives visual and practical improvements, to hide the side panel easily switch between different views of files or directly check the status bar available disk space.

Any sudden explosion will Metacity desktop ‘bareback’, since it may restart Cinnamon.
And these are the main novelties of Cinnamon 1.8, but surely there will be many little details to discover. A wait for Linux Mint 15 to do it, then. However, I can not close this post without sharing a thought into words, Nemo, screensavers, desklets (gDesklets?) … You’d Metacity fleeing something.yarpp-related-none” class=”yarpp-related
