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).

You are exactly right. Its currently good, but need that final polish. This is something I think Ubuntu will now give it as it has put its (open) dev muscle behind it.

Its interesting that the windows 95/Mac os7 GUI layout is only now starting to be replaced. Users are FAR more open to different GUIs (assuming they are intuitive) than anytime in the last decade. In large part I think this is thanks to smartphones.

Maybe we are back into the age of OS wars?

p.s. I Know we arnt, but you cant blame a guy for dreaming!
