    Cinnamon is a fork of GNOME Shell, initially developed by Linux Mint. It attempts to provide a more traditional user environment based on the desktop metaphor, like GNOME 2. Cinnamon uses Muffin, a fork of the GNOME 3 window manager Mutter, as its window manager from Cinnamon 1.2 onwards.

    Its super fast and I love it.

    I made a guide on how to install Cinnamon

    note: the PPA have not been updated yet for 1.3 as it says in the op link.

    Hey, that's great news. Far as I'm concerned, Cinnamon & XFCE are the two most promising DEs going (sorry Canonical). I expect to see it adopted by other distros.

    Cinnamon is tasty!!! I'm using it right now on my HTPC and I will probably use it to replace gnome shell on my primary box.

    Looks like development is flying along. Can't wait for this one to show up in the ubuntu ppa.

    Its needs libcogl5 installed but one or more of its dependencies aren't meant.
