And quite annoying if you accidentally move mouse there. I prefer the click.
The menu icon is located in a small confined area on the screen corner, so I think accidental activation would be rare or at least not an issue (unlike Unity launcher). Anyway, if not by default, I would like to have at least the ability to change the menu activation mode.
I know that this feature seems very subtle or even unnecessary, but trust me, it would make a huge difference.

I think that [url]cinnamon.linuxmint.com[/url] is the official site. Has anyone else seen this site? There seem to be a number of comments on the news on the site, but I haven't seen anyone talk about it on the forums.
Edit: For some reason, everytime I type in something.linuxmint.com it shows the same page with cinnamon. Just tried comunity.linuxmint.com. The links on the page redirect to cinnamon.linuxmint.com
Edit 2: From what I can find on the download page, it seems that cinnamon is available for debian unstable and therefore it might make its way to LMDE in update pack four or five.

just left with a blank desktop + conky (and therefore reminds me of unity, difference is that i could rightclick and open a terminal and even type into it)
not sure why, maybe its tied in with gnome-shell and all the extensions ive got or something

Cinnamon is fork of Gnome-shell , an gnome-shell part of GNOME3. Mint 9 use Gnome 2.

I've been using Cinnamon for a few days and really like it. i do have a question though. i installed Cinnamon on my Virtual Box testbed and all looks correct, but I notice that when I installed in on my production system I have an extra icon in my menu which says "Debian".
It's not affecting performance, but i wondered why that might be the case.
Both times I used "sudo apt-get install cinnamon-session", but a different result.
