Of course I am still trying to install muffin, LOL (Bit of a noob!)
I do like the way cinnamon is laid out, and would love to have compiz effects on a cinnamon DE.

I think that you have to either uninstall cinnamon and install from github (not sure how to do that) or wait for cinnamon 1.1.4 (or maybe 1.1.5). As I said, I don't think that muffin is much different (or different at all) from mutter, I think that they are reserving (or maybe they are already planning to) the power to make changes in the future. I agree that we need compiz (or something like it) in cinnamon, but since it is forked from gnome shell, mutter (or in this case muffin) is integrated very deeply and is very, very hard to replace.

To whomever the genius(es) are who designed Cinnamon...THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Someone who actually seems to pay attention to usability (no, that wasn't a slight on the Mint Team. They are the best in the business in my opinion). Thanks again for Cinnamon
No, I was not aware of that. Seems kind of disappointing though, knowing Clem wrote Cinnamon. I already knew he was a genius
I never use a program to its full potential, even word processors which I use for my work. I just like designs that are comfortable for me to use. Now, if someone could just redo Firefox (the latest version in the updates) Doesn't anybody use nice big easily used scroll bars?
