Re: With 12.10 are we still stuck with the silly unity interface?
Problem is, Canonical doesn't see this as being "stuck" with Unity -- that's the desktop they want us all to use by default.

I've heard that the Cinnamon desktop will be available with 13.04, but that is still an ALPHA and I would advise strongly against attempting to upgrade to that at this time.
Ubuntu 16.10 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
