Some days ago we had discussed it as one of the possible novelties of this year for Ubuntu and has just been confirmed. Ubuntu Cinnamon It's already an official flavor of one of the most popular Linux distributions.
The news was revealed in an email that Lukasz Zemczak, from Canonical's Foundations Team, sent to Joshua Peisach, leader of the project known until now as Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix.

Ubuntu Cinnamon is now an official flavor
The email, sent to the list where future releases are discussed, says the following:
Sorry for the long wait. I was able to discuss it with some of the launch team and it looks like we've come to an agreement. Welcome to the flavors of Ubuntu!
Initially, at least, I'd like to be your point of contact – we'll see how it goes, since we're not in the same time zone. We're going to start some of the integration work early next week.
The first version of Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix was in October 2019 and its developers are also responsible for the Debian variant with the same desktop. The idea is that in April of this year along with the release of the rest of the official versions now renamed Ubuntu Cinnamon 23.04 Lunar Lobster.
In practice there will be no problems in the compatibility between versions since Ubuntu Cinnamon will use many components maintained in the official version: terminal, calendar app, software center, or screenshot tool.
As they point out, they are able to keep up with not only Ubuntu updates but also those of the Cinnamon desktop.
So far, the planned work schedule is:
- February 23: Last day to incorporate new features.
- March 16: Last day to incorporate modifications to the user interface.
- March 27: Last day to make changes to the beta version.
- March 30: Release of the beta version.
- 6 April: Last day to make changes to the kernel.
- 13 April: Last day to make changes to the operating system.
- 20 April: Release of the new version.
The Cinnamon Desk
The Cinnamon desktop was developed by the Linux Mint distribution for recover the experience of having a traditional desktop with menus.

I find this flavor nonsense.
Say hello to Linux Mint leaving…
I prefer and use LINUX MINT LMDE and PEPPERMINT DEVUAN, both without JUNK SNAP Q TAKES UP ALL RAM AND BOTH BASED ON DEBIAN.
NOTHING FROM CINNAMON… LXDM OR XFCE, VERY LIGHT AND VERY LIGHT.
BYE BYE CANONICAL YOU ARE EIGHTH ON THE “CHART DE LINUX DISTROWATCH” DISTRIBUTION LIST
