Ubutntu Cinnamon Remix has now been released! It is based on Ubuntu
12.04.1 with the cinnamon desktop as default, classic panel
configuration (two panels), weather applet preinstalled, multimedia
codecs and plug-ins included, and xscreensaver preinstalled as well.
For maximum compatibility the 32-bit version uses the non-pae kernel
(also only non-gl screensavers.) The 64-bit version is also available. During the install, be sure to select the hard drive
MBR (the default choice will likely be the usb stick from which you are
installing — Ubuntu upstream bug.) Features Cinnamon 1.6.1
