How to install Cinnamon in Ubuntu 12.04

I've finally updated to the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS from the 10.04 LTS. On my more recent machines, it really is an improvement. I prefer gnome-shell to Unity, but both run well. On my older machines, I am using crunchbang, Xubuntu or Cinnamon, which is based on gnome3.

Give Cinnamon a try:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cinnamon
