Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix is an open-source GNU/Linux distribution based on Ubuntu and built around the modern and beautiful Cinnamon desktop environment. It aims to be an official Ubuntu flavor with an out-of-the-box Cinnamon experience for modern 64-bit computers.

Boot options

For this first release, the Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix live ISO image offers users a simple boot prompt that allows them to try or install the operating system, check the disc for defects if you’re using a DVD media, as well as to boot an already installed OS from the local disk drive.

The default option is to automatically start Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix in live mode, which means that you can try the operating system without installing it on your personal computer. So if you don’t press any key for 10 seconds, the live system will start up and you’ll be able to enjoy Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix.

Beautiful Cinnamon experience with great apps

Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix offers a beautiful Cinnamon experience with a gorgeous desktop theme that features red and dark grey colors. The layout comprises of a single panel located at the bottom of the screen, from where users can easily access the applications menu, task manager, and the system tray area.

It features a great software selection with some of the most popular applications, including the Mozilla Firefox web browser, Mozilla Thunderbird email and news client, LibreOffice office suite, GNOME MPV media player, GIMP image editor, gThumb image viewer, Pluma text editor, and GNOME Photos image viewer.

You will also find various utilities and a few games from the GNOME Stack. The Calamares universal installer is being used as a graphical installer, ported from Lubuntu, to allow users to install Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix on their personal computers.

Bottom line

We recommend Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix to everyone who loves Ubuntu and wants to use the Cinnamon desktop environment without having to install it on top of another Ubuntu flavor. Talking about flavors, we believe that Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix is a great candidate for an official Ubuntu Cinnamon flavor.

We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
