Yesterday, I wrote about Mint 14 becoming, Mint Elementary, but the thread had been moved to "December screenshots."
I thought the photos would say more than words, so the screenshots.
I had made SolusOS 2 Alpha, a Debian distro to take in Ubuntu ppas and work with Gala and old Slingshot. I like SolusOSvery much, and that's why I did that.
This time, I took Mint 14 and made it work with Gala and new Slingshot of eOS and while still working in "Cinnamon session" work without Cinnamon. I am not very keen on Mint. Now, it is nothing, but Cinnamon and Mate. The engine is Ubuntu Quantal. It is a simple Ubuntu based distro.
So, this Mint 14 is not Cinnamon, not Mate, but Elementarished Mint.
And, if I drop all the Mint applications, it becomes another Ubuntu-Elementary distribution.
If I install all the new applications of eOS, it becomes Elementary Luna, even with the shiny greeter of eOS Luna.
Elementary Luna has a lot of potential, at least their applications, base and especially the window manager - Gala!
Note the memory usage, without Cinnamon!
Of course, I didn't want to go through the hassle, as I wouldn't use Linux Mint for daily work.
