Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Can anyone help me explain this?

Just installed a fresh copy of Linux Mint 12 downloaded from their website only a few days ago. They claim that it uses Gnome 3 but gnome-about says it is Gnome 2.

It is Gnome 3, your above screenshot shows the version of the application explaining gnome not Gnome itself.

Try in terminal

gnome-shell --version

or open System Monitor and post what you see in system tab.
