Unfortunately, Cinnamon won't run in VMware Player, so it's of absolutely no use to me. The whole point is to test-drive a Linux Mint 12 installation in a virtual machine, before making a real installation on my workstation's hard drive.
Would it be any different if I was running VirtualBox? Dunno, but the odds of me finding out are slim-to-none -- I'm not interested in wasting time going up the learning curve with it. Testing a proposed new installation is one thing; but installing/configuring/learning a new virtual-machine environment AND only then doing the former, is something else.
So, "sayonara" Linux Mint 12, and/or any other distribution that has abandoned Gnome 2. Adieu.
