If you click on the "Minimize" character on the top right edge of the window, it closes and no way to "Maximize" the window , as you used to be able to do on the "Windoiw list button" on the Panel .
If you are going to make "Minimizing" obsolete , you should remove the "Minimize character from the window top edge.
And then the process of multi-tasking goes the way of the Dodo Bird.

Thank you for your comment.
I will investigate further.
So far, I have installed two distros with Cinnammon.
In both cases , there is a menu for setting Panel . The only widget I can find is one which is called Cinnamon window list , which does not have "maximize" and "minimize" as in the usual Gnome add widget.
I have used computer often for multi-tasking , where I can have six or eight task windows running , and can go from one task task to another , for example to copy and paste selections when authoring a website or doing a large document.

When Gnome3 (Gnome Shell) came out I started using Fedora on one of my laptops and at first I didn't like it but then it grew on me and now I love it. So I am too struggleing to decide between MATE and Cinnamon. MATE gives me that stable and plain Gnome2 I used to love from old Ubuntu, but Cinnamon gives me a bit of Gnome Shell.
I'll play a bit more with both.
