I missed out on the poll!
IMO Cinnamon mainly needs:
- calendar integration in the date applet (a calendar you can do stuff with, interact with, like in Gnome Shell, and not just see what day in the month it is)
- improved theme
- improved menu (dalcde's classic menu
so far is the best integrated menu for Cinnamon)
- proper messaging/email integration in a stock applet
- change panel height/colour/transparency via a right click menu
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!
