Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Yes, yes, it's that time of the year again - a new Fiona Apple album confirmed (which makes anything that happens between now and spring 2011 irrelevant and annoying), MorphOS 2.6 released (will be the next news item), and, of course, a new Ubuntu release showcasing the best of the best that the Free software world has to offer in the desktop world.

RE[4]: Design fail

Really, there's no need to be so reactionary. I never said anything about it being unusable; it's perfectly usable, but the design is simply inferior. If the difference between elegance and looking off lies in a few pixels, then yes, a few pixels matter. If you're seriously equating good design with usability, then...well, I guess you're perfectly happy with Ubuntu's poorly thought-out visual design!

I listed 24 reasons why the menu is off below, take a look.

Edit: I've never used Apple TV, but if it's really how you describe, then that would explain its bad market performance. I don't actually own any Apple products, but my point was more about how methodical they are in their design. I don't see the same kind of sustained effort come through in Ubuntu.
