How about you do your own homework and visit each site.

Visit distrowatch.com and you can do a search by package version. Good luck!

I think the others are saying that we would have to do the research, that you could do for yourself, to answer your question.

Mint hasn't got Gnome 3 (Gnome Shell) yet in a stable release but it is in the latest release candidate. As for the others I don't know, nor do I really care (not being nasty just truthful) as I am using Gnome 3 on my machine from Debian's repository but you don't list Debian in your OP.

I would watch what you say. With that comment you are going to get people to bash you and they locked the thread. But just to help you if you go to the download page of some of the distro sites it will tell you their what desktops they have. DVDs normally have 1 primary desktop but has others packed into it.

Hard to believe. A couple of minutes on distrowatch would have gotten you this far.

1. Linux Mint - Not there yet
2. Ultimate Edition - Not there yet
3. PinguyOS - Not there yet
4. SimplyMepis - Version 8.5.03 released April 16, 2010
5. Xandros - Not there yet
6. Toorox - prior to 06.2009 release, but I'll leave it to you to figure out exactly when.

So, clearly, grail misunderstood the question you are actually asking. Perhaps you could clarify what you want other than what I found with a quick search at distrowatch.

Okay here is what I found.

Package dropdown menu does list libgnome 2.32.1 (as newbie this means nothing to me and brief Google search did nothing to change that, but I'll assume it indicates Gnome version 2). So I enter '3' in the version box and get no distro listings at all...problem here is I know for certain that Toorox has switched to version 3. So now I change version box to '2', and get large list of distros that supposedly still use Gnome version 2....including Toorox! Something is not right here! So now I go back to package dropdown menu to switch to "kdebase"...which is nowhere in sight! Something is very not right here. If I'm doing something wrong in this process, let me know.

Type in 3.0 where is says version for gnome-shell and it says Debian and a few others. None of the ones in your list come up. It is a 30 second search at the most which brings the thread back to the point of your question being something you could have done for yourself.

I would add that it isn't totally accurate. I am running Gnome-shell 3.2 but distrowatch doesn't show Debian as having it available.

if you give respect, you get respect. If you give attitude, you get attitude. Yes, I'm a newbie. That don't mean:
1. I'm too lazy or stupid to do basic research prior to posting.
2. I'm inclined to be a doormat to Linux pros.
If you see a question you don't like, pass it on by.

Where it says "distribution name" type "Linux Mint" and click "Go." You'll learn everything you ever wanted to know about Mint. Repeat for the other 5 distros on your list.

If distrowatch is down, then you can go to the websites for Mint and the other distros and read the Release Notes.
