A few questions for the group [they're related] First please if you have any bias aganst ppa's, for the sake of this conversation, put them aside. Personally, I use some that I trust [like ones on OMG Ubuntu, WebUp8 for instance] but I research a LOT before installing/using them.
Okay, so there is a ppa that is providing Cinnamon 3.x for Ubuntu 16.04. In the Ubuntu Repos, they provide Cinnamon 2.x [want to say 2.8 maybe, suffice to say, 3.x is the newest version of Cinnamon, the Ubuntu Repos have an older one, one or two versions back]
Question 1: Dose anyone have any guesses as to if and/or when Cinnamon 3.x may show up in the Ubuntu Repos?
Question 2: Do you think it's worth installing Cinnamon 3.x to tinker with etc or smarter to install 2.x? [I had 2.x installed on my last set up, currently I am using the default Unity 7 in Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit]
I am leaning towards 3.x ... via the ppa for now, then if/when the repos get 3.x I could purge the ppa and go mainstream
