Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "With the Ubuntu Software Store, Canonical is hoping to unify all of the different package management needs into a single, unified interface. While this will not be achieved in Ubuntu 9.10, Canonical is hoping that all of the capabilities of the update-manager, Synaptic, the computer janitor application, gdebi, and other package management-related programs will be merged into Ubuntu Software Store. When this has occurred, it will be easier on the new end-user having to just deal with a single program to provide all of this functionality."

RE[3]: KDE?

Member since:

Not going to happen, at least as long as Ubuntu makes true accessibility one of their design goals. Until KDE can provide that the way GNOME does, it won't ever be default in Ubuntu. If you want KDE, that's what Kubuntu is for and is exactly why they provide it.

I'm aware of Kubuntu. Let me be more clear:

Shuttleworth should stop dumping money into a desktop that looks like a slightly updated OS9.

If he wants people to switch from Windows he needs to make an OS that doesn't look like it is from the 90's.

He can add all the user utilities he wants to KDE if he doesn't think it is user friendly enough. Sticking with gnome is just a bad idea. It looks like a cell phone interface compared to Vista or OSX.
