Yeah..... read that a few days ago... When a new version of Gnome hits the Arch repos... it borks Cinnamon because it needs to be rebuilt against the new version of Gnome...

Personally... I'm sick of all these bedroom respins of every fkn distro out there.... That's why I only review the most popular distros or distros that actually have some REAL development behind it...

Cinnarch if I recall was made in Russia.
But let's just see here! I can install Cinnamon from repos to debian wheezy or crunchbang.
I can install cinnamon to fedora! Then we have LMDE of course. And there is a kit for Slackware to install Cinnamon.
And of course ARCH has it also, even though I just don't like anything arch. Or Manjero either..
Gentoo has an ebuild to install cinnamon. And Sabayon has

BTW, this Sabayon I've installed so far in just a virtual box.
Can't remember if OpenSuse has a cinnamon package or not... They must somewhere...
