Cinnamon is a Linux desktop which provides advanced innovative features and a traditional user experience.

The desktop layout is similar to Gnome 2. The underlying technology is forked from Gnome Shell. The emphasis is put on making users feel at home and providing them with an easy to use and comfortable desktop experience.


Cinnamon is on GitHub at https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon.

Note that some issue may not be with Cinnamon itself. For a list of related components, please see http://developer.linuxmint.com/projects.html and file in the appropriate repo.
