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 agree that it's not relevant, but don't underestimate the power of marketing. The reason that Windows is king today is one part lock-in conspiracy and three parts marketing, both to end users and to corporate types. Why did Windows beat Netware in the network OS market? Domains were easier to set up than NDS trees... oh, and marketing. Mostly marketing.
