You can't allways make perfect steps when design new stuff, but some miss steps provides also a lot of information too. In Mint 12 Cinnamon and MGSE case, it was timing. Cinnamon game later than Mint 12 release.
We people are different and we don't allways like the same stuff. Some like more old ways, some new ways, some something else. Hole idea about different desktops and distributions is about finding what you self like. Do you really think that older Mint desktop is better for new Mint user like me, who started to use Linux desktops start of this year. Because there is big different what someone else like and what you self like. I have no past "experience" from older Linux Mints, so I have no "expetations" or "burden" by older versions. Could older Mint be better for me, maybe? But what's the point, I started with Mint 12 gnome and it was fine. Now I run Mint 12 Cinnamon and I like it even more. Mint 13 will have Cinnamon as default, lucky for me. Why learn gnome 2 desktop and when there is no future for it anyway. Sooner or later people have to move forward, it's just a question where and when. That timing and choice depences everyone own needs.
