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).

Saw GNOME in the title, and couldn't resist the urge to say teh GNOME sucks.

The problem is that Ubuntu has ditched the default Gnome desktop shell environment for one that it is creating itself. To a greater or lesser extent that means that the Ubuntu developers feel that Gnome sucks. This mess really does nothing to expose the parent of this thread as a troll. In fact, it gives him ammunition.

What with the question being raised regarding using Qt as a development platform for Ubuntu people need to be asking what the state of Gnome is when it comes to Ubuntu and why it isn't doing what they want.
