Here’s a video review of Cinnamon 2.0 from the Linux Action Show:
The review starts at 38:30.
- The menu is still a little slow to open and that still isn’t fixed in 2.0. We think it’s to do with Clutter and the rendering of the icons.
- In the sound applet the layout is a little off.. that’s to do with the theme used in the review. The seeker doesn’t work well either, that, I think, is to do with the player used. We’ll need to look into that.
- Window snapping wasn’t featured in this review. LAS actually used what we call “Window Tiling”. It’s confusing because Windows calls that Aero-Snap… Window Snapping is much more cool than that. What we might do is wait for Mint 16 to be out, and then feature a video explaining what Window Snapping is and why it’s everybody’s new favorite toy. People will then be able to watch the video and try it at the same time on their own computer.
Thanks to LAS for a great review.
Enjoy the video ;)
