Hopefully they get the Compiz and desktop switcher worked out. XFCE is OK but it isn't working out for me. I do not like the feel of Gnome 3 and shell but I do like the progress that was made with it. I am not a stickler for 'the old way', I just like less mouse clicks to get where I want to be. If I was, I would still be using the command line for everything. Hope to see good thinks come out of this project, he did good with Mint, FTMP.
I love whisky and candy corn, but not at the same time.
