Cinnamon  - a modern and customizable desktop environment.  

Spin description

Cinnamon desktop is a more traditional desktop than Gnome Shell. It is GTK=based but retains the panel and traditional menus most Linux users are used to. Most applications that will run in Gnome Shell will look similar in Cinnamon. Cinnamon also provides graphical configuration tools where Gnome Shell does not, and has a rich set of available extensions and downloadable themes.
