    I installed Ubuntu 12.04 in a Virtualbox VM (normally I'm using Kubuntu 12.04) and added Cinnamon via that ppa. Not bad at all :) With Cinnamon installed, Ubuntu is becoming an alternative again. There is also a Cinnemon Extras ppa that offers Cinnamon applets, themes and extensions which is not yet available for Precise, though.

    BTW: For the first time I stumbled upon the file manager emelFM2 which I had not known before. I'm impressed - it's fast, light and nevertheless feature-rich. A good alternative for Krusader for Gnome/Cinnamon.
