According to this yes, but not sure how well it applies to the latest version.

I've also played around with this on a couple of distros but always came to the conclusion it is better to stick with a default setup, so if you like Cinnamon, install Mint.

Won't be bothering with 13.04 Ubuntu but I did have a quick look at Xubuntu 13.04 in a live session and it was pretty dreadful compared with my extended experience of the 12.04 LTS.

Can't argue with proven success.
