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).

Sure you can have windowed mode, all windows are really windowed. Just in unity on netbook, most windows are maximized.

I use Unity on a desktop, and have lots of non-maximised windows open. I really like the global menu bar in Gnome applications, real space saver, and for me at least, is so much more logical going to the same place (top of screen) for the menu instead of the each individual window.
