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).

Unless I am massively confused (happens), Ubuntu is actually switching Window Managers, from Matacity to Unity. They are still using the Gnome Desktop environment. Are people having trouble differentiating a Window Manager from a Desktop Environment?

I read several articles on the subject, and I don't see anyone mentioning this.
