Hi there

l was curious to see if there was such a thing in the pipeline

I had heard unofficial rumors about a Ubuntu Gnome Release l was not 
sure if they were true and if it was in the pipeline from the Ubuntu 

This would be great news , as its seems the Unity "refuse-nicks" are 
slowly  moving to Linux-Mint

The problem with 12.04 is its becoming like Microsoft  but this time 
forcing one desktop over another not giving the user the choice to add 
Unity later

A selection in the installation process would be a better option to give 
the user choice and not do what Microsoft did with its browser forcing 
you to have it or suffer

Kind Regards

Nico Michael
