Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix Joins Official Ubuntu Flavor
Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix will officially join the other flavors as an official Ubuntu flavor with the next Ubuntu 23.04 (Lunar Lobster) release.
The primary goal of Cinnamon Remix is to provide a traditional Linux desktop experience to its users. This Ubuntu variant is accepted as an official flavor as it has lasted for three years, has proven it can be maintained by a group of volunteers, and has a vibrant community that engages with upstream Ubuntu.

Developed and maintained by members of the Linux community, Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix utilizes the modern Cinnamon desktop environment created by the Linux Mint team. With a combination of a traditional Windows-style layout and additional features, the Cinnamon desktop delivers a unique experience.
Hence, Ubuntu Cinnamon is a wonderful option if you are in search of an Ubuntu flavor and Cinnamon desktop without many tweak issues. In addition, if you like utilizing Snap over Flatpak and enjoy how the standard Ubuntu flavors operate on your system, Ubuntu Cinnamon can be an excellent choice.
The maintainers of Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix have previously attempted to attain official Ubuntu flavor status on multiple occasions. However, it was only recently that Canonical decided to include it in the Ubuntu family of flavors, beginning with the release of Ubuntu 23.04 (Lunar Lobster) scheduled for April 20th, 2023.
Making Ubuntu Cinnamon an official flavor ahead of Ubuntu 23.04 is also important because next year it can take participation in the Ubuntu 24.04 LTS milestone. Since it requires at least two non-LTS releases (now 23.04 and 23.10) for participating in the next Long Term Support release.
The latest daily build suggests that Ubuntu Cinnamon 23.04 is almost ready for release next month. For more information, the official announcement is available on the Ubuntu Cinnamon blog.
