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).

If they held a vote, say on their website, then mostly vocal power-users would respond, who are often afraid of change because they've mastered what's there already (see the "ribbon" fears).
I assume users want an intuitive, usable interface. If that's what they feel they have, then its what the users should get.
