I could not stand the new Gnome 3 and came here looking for ways to increase the font size.
So far I could not find a way to do that..
I am going back to Linux Mint 11. Once I feel Mint is too old, if the new Mint is still PITA, may be I will have to go back to Windows. I liked the freedom I had with Linux but nothing is permanent.

I really really want to use Linux, but until it "just works" I can't spend the time.
The idea is good, but it seems to me Linux has gone down the good 'ole American / Micro$oft route of making itself more and more complex so that you spend more time sorting out problems than using it.

I presently have 6 systems running on 4 computers of various ages and brands, none of which has less than 2gb ram. These include Mint 12 gnome3-etc 64-bit (LXDE desktop), Mint 11 LXDE and Lubuntu 11.10 (both 32-bit and 64-bit). The big stuff worked out of the box, the other stuff easy to set-up and all are very stable - what works one way today, works the same way tomorrow. With simplicity often comes beauty and functionality.
