Cinnamon 1.3.1 is the latest version of Cinnamon, a new desktop environment forked from GNOME 3 by the developers of Linux Mint. Given the need for a desktop other than Unity on Ubuntu, Cinnamon just might be the best GNOME 3 alternative desktop environment available.
This tutorial gives the simple steps required to install Cinnamon 1.3.1 on Ubuntu 11.10.
One of the better alternatives to Unity that has been made available is the Cinnamon desktop, a project of Linux Mint, a desktop distribution based on Ubuntu Desktop itself. This article show the simple steps needed to install and use Cinnamon on Ubuntu 12.04.

This tutorial shows how you can install Linux Mint's Cinnamon desktop on Fedora 18. Since it has now been included in the repositories this can now be done quite quickly. Fedora's default desktop at the moment is GNOME 3.
But while it does not have its own Fedora 19 installation image, you can run a Cinnamon desktop on Fedora 19 by installing the cinnamon package either from the command-line or from Apper, the graphical package manager.
The latest version is Cinnamon 1.3.1, but if you are running Sabayon 8 (GNOME), the binary version available for installation is Cinnamon 1.2.0
That, however, from my perspective anyway, is still better than the default GNOME 3 desktop that comes with Sabayon 8. This short tutorial gives the steps you need to install in – if you are running Sabayon 8.
Linux Mint 15 "Olivia" is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu Linux 13.04. Mint is intended to be easy to install and easy to use for desktop users who prefer a traditional desktop layout. It is available in for both 32 bit and 64 bit Intel architectures.
