New user...

I am new user of linuxmint from India chosen LMDE cinnamon. I recently ditched ubuntu because of their unacceptable behavior.

I don't like their tabletised interface, online integration and cloud service.

Tabletised interface: there is no need to go in that direction. If they need an their OS work on mobile and tablet they can easily design other interface or i would say the current interface is acceptable for mobile and tablets. For desktop I will go for old one.

Online integration: I don't understand why anyone would need this on their desktop or laptop? What the point of privacy we will get. And personally i don't want to convert my desktop to tablet.

Cloud service: Why this???? If i need cloud service i can go for anyone there are dozen of cloud services available. In my case drop-box.

I don't understand what's wrong with these people they earned the trust of the people by working hard. They can't afford them to loose them because of their silly mistakes. I heard linuxmint team listen to their customer if it is true they can hits the bulls eye.

My personal request to linuxmint team is please don't follow the path of canonical. Stay what you are, provide us the OS simple, straight forward and which work out of the box.

After all this is my personal perspective... I would like to know the thought of other peoples...
