I have been using Linux Mint since M12 and I love it. And in the Mint community I have found a heaven of sanity like I suppose many other "Ubuntu refugees". Yet, something is really distressing me: I cannot have both Cinnamon and GNOME 3 on the same M15 machine. I realize that a lot of people hate G3, but I also know that I am hardly the only one who loves it. And, really, I believe that Cinnamon and G3 are the perfect combination! I would love to have an intuitive and yet beautiful desktop environment like Cinnamon running for those who are not comfortable with the rather exotic G3 and yet have the option to log into G3 for me a the few power users I know who love it too.
I have read in the forums here that the problem is that Cinnamon and G3 use different versions of various components, but surely there must be a sane way to keep them apart depending on what the user wants to log in?!
And please do not send me to other distros! I don't want RPMs (been there, done that, never again) or to Ubuntu (been there, done that, never again). I love Mint and I want to keep Mint. Please guys - don't make me chose between my two loves! Find a way to combine these two desktop environments into one distro!!
Many thanks in advance,
