Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Well, this is sure to raise a few eyebrows here and there. Today, at the Ubuntu Developer Summit, Mark Shuttleworth held his keynote speech, and in it, he announced that Ubuntu will switch to the Unity user interface come release, for both the netbook as well as the desktop, leaving the GNOME user interface behind (but keeping the GNOME platform).

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a Netbook of mine last Saturday with Unity and I have to say I have come to love it. It will be a big hit on the desktop too, but yes on the desktop more work on windows management will be neeeded.
Ubuntu is doing the right thing with Unity, it is a very promising piece or work.

I have to disagree. Unity *looks* nice, but that sidebar makes it almost unusable - it eats enough horizontal space to break rendering of most websites I deal with. If it appeared only in response to mouseover, it'd be great, but as a permanent feature, it's a usability disaster.
