Gnome 2 - the King lives!

Looks (potentially) to be the best Christmas present ever!
Buy a Hoover and prove technology sucks.

Might be true . A new version is not always necessary to be better than an old version as it might be a regression instead of a progression. Today I installed Ubuntu 13.10 but it encountered a "kernel panic" (which is equivalent to Windows' term "Blue Screen of Death"). Mr. G says many have encountered these errors.

Even more weird was that when I tried to boot into a Linux Mint 16 Petra partition, it displayed a Linux Mint logo for couple of seconds, then it landed onto a Ubuntu 13.10 desktop on the same PC.

Here's a note on this page saying that "Linux Mint 16 supports EFI installations, but cannot be dual-booted with Ubuntu in EFI mode", but I only tried it in legacy BIOS mode. Has anyone encountered this?
