Default Mint 12 RC - A Frankenstein Creation?

Someone is less than impressed:

http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/11/l...greatest-hits/

It is a release candidate & it does look strange with 2 of this, two of that and strange use of themes etc.
Hopefully the final will have been tweaked a bit.

I read omgubuntu all the time, (like it mostly) and of course they are going to be less than impressed. They get excited about a new icon for something in ubuntu. They get excited if someone sneezes and it sounds like "ubuntu."

I downloaded the RC, but will have to wait until next week to give it a test run as I am traveling on business the rest of this week. We'll see how it goes.

With all the controversy surrounding desktop environments lately--including not just GNOME 3 but also Ubuntu's Unity and even Windows 8's Metro--I'm liking the sound of Mint's hybrid approach more every day.

... you canít have docks, or add items to panels anymore. That said, I found Linux Mint to be taking the full advantage of the goodies that Gnome 3 has to offer. With all those useful shell-extensions, I believe Linux Mint has done a great job. I think Linux Mint is the one distro which will make users love Gnome 3 without even realizing it.

I loved it so far.

This guy doesn't have use Mint as his full time OS but expects those of us that do will just enjoy all the goodies. What I'm seeing is if we want Mint to look and feel like the OS we are accustomed to we will need a truck load of extensions.

Seems to me the developers of Unity and Gnome3 have decided we the users will learn to love their creations and if not tough toenails
