No, I have been experimenting with an attempt to build a Cinnamon meta for US
as an alternate desktop, springing from discussions in the early summer about 
other DE's with UbuntuStudio. I use Cinnamon myself in a personalized OS that
descended from what was originally US Hardy, following rolling upgrades since
then with two reinstall transitions. When the GNOME 3 mess hit, I first played 
with Unity before discovering first gnome-shell frippery, then Cinnamon. 

Big video editing machines (like mine) are so powerful that no current DE is heavy
enough to drag them down, and I always liked the look that these DE's brougnt to 
the old style US themes, etc.

I am now seeing a broad switch from Ubuntu to Xubuntu in places like Phoronix
and their benchmarking, interestingly enough. A Cinnamon meta, a GNOME 3 
meta, or a Unity Meta (just pull werkflows into default ubuntu?) needs a very powerful
machine not to sacrifice performance in video work, at least 4 cores and a modern
graphics card.

I would NOT reconmend any compositing DE for a dual core or single-core machine 
used for any form of performance-critical work like multitrack audio or video editing.
