a while something like a new wave of distributions based on Arch Linux whose main differentiation with his mother distro is to provide easier installation and-something that also makes it distinguish between them, the dedication to a particular desktop environment. Manjaro is the case with Xfce, although the project has been introduced as alternatives has grown, it is also the case Cinnarch, which, as its name suggests, puts on an Arch Linux Cinnamon , Linux Mint mask that you put on GNOME 3.
However, the future of Cinnarch not pass nor Cinnamon or very likely to still be called equal . It’s what they say on the official blog of the project and have their good reasons for such a drastic change. Apparently, Cinnamon is the best option for it, but the developers of Linux Mint are almost a year behind the bleeding edge of Arch Linux, thus maintaining everything working correctly becomes too costly task.
So while Arch Linux is preparing to welcome GNOME 3.8 in brief, the Cinnamon team is still in the process of migrating tools to work with the current version of the desktop environment. A difficult situation to keep it ends: Cinnarch will use GNOME 3.8 and GNOME Shell on Arch Linux , modeled rolling release feature.
given a change of such a level, those responsible for the distribution have been consistent and ask their users if should rename the project , and at that point it appears that the feedback and going to be.
If you’re out to try this Arch Linux cinnamon flavored, last week released their latest version, which is forecast to break soon.
