Mint cinnamon


Do people like the new mint cinnamon because it looks like windows? When I read reviews there doesn't seem to be any functional advantage with most of these distros, only graphical ones. It seems to me that people who used windows prefer mint and those that have macs like the unity desktop.

Or am I dreadfully wrong?

The GUI is much better than any Windows - it's much easier to use.
Functionally its mostly Ubuntu (but improved).

Don't really know why. I hate Ubuntu 12 and 14 desktops. Yes, I have them installed and use them, but they have problems and I chose to way customize them so that they behave differently than their defaults.

With MINT Cinnamon, I installed the Debian version, liked it, and never looked back.

Haven't used a MAC in years.
