This is the kind of thing that happens when you reach the status that Mint has achieved. This article was posted on a Ubuntu driven site and seems like a "Who can I make look bad so I look good today" type of thing to me. If you get right down to it, to use Ubuntu as a base you are SUPPOSED to remove ALL references to Ubuntu and that is exactly what Clem did. To call the thing with Banshee a "scandal" is ridicules and very petty. I should hope that anyone with an ounce of common sense would see that article for what it really is and dismiss it as dirty, underhanded journalism.

I think the concept behind Mint 12 is fantastic - giving users what they say they want; giving us Gnome 3 without the Gnome Shell. However, the complexity of this task means that it is bound to be a slightly experimental release. Not so good for a workstation, where I want zero failures/zero 'adjustment time' once it has been set up as I want it. Mint 10 delivers this level of satisfaction.
I shall hang on where I am for the time being. If LM13 is a LTS release, I'd be tempted by it. By then, there may be many more extensions around to make Gnome 3 more useable.

After the Mint dev's recent actions and reactions involving Banshee affiliate codes, I think my laptop will follow suit. I'm also doubtful of staying as a member of the Mint community.
