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'm too old fashioned...

I have Ubuntu/Unity on my netbook and I really am not fond of it. I mean, it's alright, but I still prefer older paradigms I guess... app bar, windows... I understand that full-screen is nice on a small screen but I work with a large screen for development so I can have all kinds of stuff up for coding, documentation, server management, etc. I am guessing you CAN use windowed mode in Unity because some apps (like someone above mentioned, Chrome) do not work well with Unity.

But I will still download and try out the live disk when it is released.
