In the meantime I'm quite happy with Unity. It's not perfect, but I still find it miles ahead of gnome3. Unity can use Compiz, it's smoother and more consistent graphically, and BEST OF ALL it doesn't look like the setup menu on a playstation video game. No matter what theme I use gnome3 looks cartoonish and fugly. Unity (with Ubuntu) at least keeps that nice slick gnome2 aesthetic.

Also I always have repo/update issues with every version of Mint I use.

Personally I think that PinguyOS is a much better alternative to Ubuntu. PinguyOS is to Mint as Mint is to Ubuntu.

I still use unity too. I have it set up with the compiz desktop cube. I do use gnome tweak tool to switch between gtk themes. There aren't many though. Im using "atolm" with the ambiance window theme (cant beat ambiance window theme IMHO)
