That doesn't appear to be happening. One, Gnome Shell isn't very popular around here. Two, the only thing that made Gnome Shell sane to a lot of us was MGSE, which has been replaced with Cinnamon.

However, that isn't to say that you can't still get Gnome Shell on Mint. But, you may have to install it yourself.

Yes, MGSE has been dropped in favour of Cinnamon. But if you enjoy pure Gnome Shell, just install the gnome-shell package and you are ready to go.

Just to share an alternative, Clem has just added a tutorial on how to respin your own Linux Mint edition ( So anybody with a bit of know-how could make a pure Gnome Shell respin of Linux Mint :wink:
