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).

Adding something of value is the prerequisite of participation. "GNOME sucks" is crap, plain and simple - whether you agree or not is besides the point. It doesn't help with the discussion, it's a flamebait (and seeing how this thread is progressing, it is quite successful as such), it's not informative, it's not interesting, it's nothing but... as one commenter aptly put it - crap.

"GNOME crashes for me every 15 minutes therefore it sucks" - that's still crap. It does not for possibly millions of users. Again, comments like that add nothing to the discussion - they merely provoke "no it doesn't on my PC" responses, and again we end up talking about... what exactly? Surely not Thom's article which was about Ubuntu switching to Unity.
