http://blog.sudobits.com – Unity is the default Desktop environment of Ubuntu 12.04 – Precise Pangolin, LTS (from the last few versions, before that GNOME was the default desktop). On the other hand, Cinnamon is the Default Desktop Environment of Linux Mint 13 (Maya) Cinnamon Edition (Linux Mint 13 also comes with other Desktop Environment such as MATE, KDE, XFCE etc). Although, both Unity and Cinnamon is based on GNOME 3 but Cinnamon is more closer as it also uses Gnome Shell as its core. Cinnamon and Unity, both of the Desktop is available independently, so any one can try it in any other (supported) Linux dist (HowTos)
