No ads or security-compromising scams crammed down our throats?
No lack of intuitive usage?
What MUST M. Clement Lefebvre be thinking?
Perhaps his usual "I've got to do the best possible and work my hardest for my users"?
Perhaps, "If I build the best possible Linux distro, it'll one day be the number one free Linux distro?". Oh--cancel that: that's a done deal.
Naaahhhh; these couldn't be the reasons dumbuntu dropped to #4 on the latest, most widely-read distro ranking system (which doesn't mean a thing; to dumbuntu users, anyway).
@1: You're BRAGGING about using ubuntu (I do hope that you don't refer to one of your choices as ubuntu LINUX) and win8, and in the same breath? I guess the two do go together. And, best of luck to you.
@2: M. Lefebvre has said that Mint 14 KDE will be available around the end of the year.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

I do mean Linux Ubuntu 12.04. yeas and Windows 8. Ubuntu mostly for web browsing and watching movies, windows to get some serous things done which Ubuntu can't (Excel, 1-C accounting system). And how is that BRAGGING? Just stating my preference over Mint

Mint and Ubuntu are darned good; and almost good enough for just about anyone to use. Get those Office suites fixed, and these guys are on their way.

I'm planning on giving it a whirl anyway, though; I've long been a (K/L)Ubuntu user and have already tried a slew of other distros (Fedora, Debian, Slackware, Gentoo, Softlanding, you name it), so I'm definitely willing to try it out.

Cinnamon now features its own file browser: Nemo.
Nemo, the Cinnamon file browser
Cinnamon will eventually handle all visible layers of the Gnome desktop and provide an integrated experience, not only in terms of window and workspace management, but also in terms of file browsing, configuration and desktop presentation. Cinnamon 1.6 comes with tight integration for Nemo and a brand new backgrounds selection screen.
Nemo improves on Nautilus in many areas and offers a lot of new features.
