As its name suggests, Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix is a free and open source distribution of Linux derived from the world?s most popular free operating system, Ubuntu, and built around the Cinnamon desktop environment, a fork of GNOME 3.
The distribution uses Ubuntu?s unique boot screen, allowing the user to try the operating system without installing anything on his or her computer, start the installer directly and permanently install the OS on a local drive, check the integrity of the bootable medium (only if using a DVD disc), run a memory test, as well as to boot from the local drive.
Attractive desktop environment with a two-panel layout
Usually, a standard Cinnamon setup uses a single panel located on the bottom edge of the screen, but this distribution uses a classic two-panel layout. To launch applications, the user must use the main menu implemented on the top panel, to interact with them, use the bottom panel.
