I'm replacing my 6 year old SUSE 10.1 home system and went to distrowatch for the first time last night to look for a recent Ubuntu with Gnome V2 to approximate what I have at work. SnowLinux looks promising.

Hello luko,

Linux Mint is more created with its own tools, for example mintinstall, mintnanny, mintmenu, mint..., mint..., mint.... Snowlinux instead is using the Ubuntu tools.

Hi Carlos,

theme-specific things will be changed in the future anyway. This time we had lots of work to make MATE, Cinnamon and GNOME work on Ubuntu 12.10. Because we managed this problem, we've got time for other improvements (for example theme-specific things) in the next release.

Greetings,
Lars

Would be great it it were blue, you know, snow, blue; green is so dissonant.
