I found Cinnarch because I was specifcally looking for a linux distribution that met as many of my criteria as possible. I have been a long time Ubuntu user until Unity and Gnome 3 drove me away. I did a long stint with Kubuntu and don’t care for KDE. I tried Lubuntu but LXDE and XFCE are both just a little too spartan for my tastes. I found Mint with Cinnamon and absolutely love it. EXCEPT that I’m really getting tired of reinstalling every 6-9 months. I thought I had found my dream with Cinnarch that hit the sweet spot for me with the single exception of not being Debian (simply because I have a history of understanding with apt-get/aptitude/dpkg etc).
- Rolling Release
- Cinnamon default
- Proprietary software by default (Flash, Java, codecs, proprietary video drivers etc)
- Debian/Apt based
Is Cinnamon not going to be the default moving forward? If not is it going to a super easy addition to replace the disaster that is Gnome 3? What about Nemo vs the now crippled Nautilus?
Please help me understand.
