Introducing Ubuntu Cinnamon

Community-driven, featuring Linux Mint’s Cinnamon Desktop with Ubuntu at the core, packed fast and full of features, here is the most traditionally modern desktop you will ever love.

What is Ubuntu Cinnamon?

Ubuntu Cinnamon is a community-driven flavor of Ubuntu, combining Linux Mint’s flagship Cinnamon Desktop with Ubuntu, packed with everything you need to go with it. Keeping stability, speed, and elegance is our top priority.

Cinnamon takes the more traditional approach of a GNOME 2 and MATE-like desktop. Similar to Windows 7, it is easy to transition from your Windows system to Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix, and even if you still prefer to keep Windows on the side, you can always dual-boot Windows and Ubuntu Cinnamon.

Keep everything simple

With Ubuntu Cinnamon, you get the traditional default Cinnamon desktop along with most GNOME Desktop applications. The LibreOffice suite also comes pre-installed.

However, all of these are utilities, so if you want to install an application that will do something for you, such as a firewall of your choice, you can simply uninstall the old firewall, and replace it as your choice.

In other words, Ubuntu Cinnamon gives you the most standardized and traditional software, that allows the user to remove the application and then choose a different application over it as they wish.


In Ubuntu Cinnamon, personalization is as easy as ever. You can change whatever your heart desires and it will be accessible.

From changing your desktop appearance to your panel layouts and icon sizes, Ubuntu Cinnamon has it all. Install your themes, enable them, and click away!

Cinnamon Spices

The Cinnamon Community has made plenty of spices, to “spice” up your desktop. From applets that allow you to add more panel entries, to desklets to add more to your desktop, to extensions, to extend your Cinnamon, along with the power of themes, the sky’s the limit.

Download some Cinnamon Spices at the official Cinnamon Spices page.
