Discover. The Cinnamon Desktop
Traditional layout, advanced features, easy to use, powerful, flexible
Cinnamon is built on top of core GNOME technologies like GTK and Clutter yet provides a more traditional desktop while still including modern advanced features. More akin to KDE and unlike GNOME, it is designed to be very flexible and configurable. Together these things make it a great desktop option!
Tradition still reigns
The applications menu uses a traditional category system to divide up applications, but also includes handy favourites right there in the menu. Preferences, administration, places as well as shortcuts to logout and power tasks are readily available.
