gshegosh writes "The disappointed part of Ubuntu and Gnome user community is quite vocal. Both Unity and Gnome Shell break "compatibility" with user old habits of having window-oriented, customizable desktop environment instead of Apple-style app-oriented, locked one.
There are some that try to hold on to Gnome 2 (there's even a fork) but it will get harder while time passes by and more and more applications use GTK3.
Linux Mint developers have recently revealed that they are working on extensions that will make new Gnome look and feel more traditional way. Will it make disgruntled users happy? Will Mint replace Ubuntu as #1 distribution? I for one am sure going to try it out."
