I'm using Mint Cinnamon, and am very happy with it. The "classic" desktop works fine - why the need to reinvent it? I had a Mac for several years, and didn't find OS X - much less the idiotic Dock - to be any more useful than plain old Windows XP. I ran Ubuntu until Unity, which simply didn't offer any real added utility, just more pointless doo-dads. The reason why so many people stick with XP, or Vista, or even Windows 2000 is because it just works. (<a href="http://www.gw2gold.net">buy guild wars 2 gold</a>)They understand it. They don't need added gobbledy-gook flying all over the screen, or the OS "hiding" stuff on the assumption that they don't need it.
