I have moved from Mate to Cinnamon recently.
(Well, I like Mate for its good balance between lightweight and usefulness.)
Cinnamon has a lot of useful function and elegant effect, and most of them satisfy me.
The default style of "alt + tab" windows switcher is one of few exceptions.
With too small icons, I couldn't figure out what the application is:
In the system settings window, go to [Preferences] - [Windows]:
Choose [Alt-Tab] tab and set up [Alt-Tab switcher style]:
The options are:
- Icons only
- Thumbnails only
- Icons and thumbnails
- Icons and window preview
- Windows preview (no icons)
- Coverflow (3D)
- Timeline (3D)
With bigger icons and also thumbnails:
It's better to me : )
