After many months of work, the team behind Ubuntu Cinnamon announces the first version of this unofficial distribution.
The popular Ubuntu Linux distribution comes in a large number of variants, with the most popular environments being GNOME, KDE Plasma, Xfce, LXQt, MATE and Budgie, but we have never seen a distribution with the Cinnamon graphical environment, created by the same developers in charge of Linux Mint.
In the last months we saw that some developers are working on a version of Ubuntu with Cinnamon and after some time we finally have the first final version that for the moment is called Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix.
If you ever wanted to try Cinnamon on your Ubuntu distribution, you had to have it installed on an official environment using the system repositories. But that needed some knowledge, that's why it was decided to create this version.
This first release of Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix is powered by Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine so you will receive the latest and greatest in Linux technologies. Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix comes with Cinnamon 4.0.10, UEFI support, Calamares installer, LightDM, Slick, Kimmo themes and a great selection of software.
Of course, Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix is called this way because it is not an official flavor yet, but it has the potential to become one if the community gives it enough support and Canonical accepts it, in the same way that happened with Ubuntu MATE and other flavors.
