Knoppix was my first Linux experience, but Ubuntu was the first OS to put in support for my USB wireless card. After that, I've been solid Ubuntu/Debian. Being so used to the way Gnome looks has locked me into using a Gnome-fork of some kind. I feel that Ubuntu's Unity will driver more people to Gnome 3/Gnome-Fallback, but not to a non-Gnome fork. After all, people are complaining about the change to Unity. A Gnome-fork will be the closest thing to that pre-Unity state.

AlbertP wrote:That you cannot make launchers in Cinnamon was perhaps the case in older versions but it's not true anymore. In Cinnamon 1.4, which is used in Mint 13 Cinnamon and present in the Mint 12 repository, you can right-click items in the menu > Add to Panel. There are your launchers.
Adding them manually is also possible by right-clicking any launcher > Add.
