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 hope that something new comes out of this DE mess. I can't stand anymore GNOME being so stagnant, I can't stand KDE not being more than enough, I can't stand xfce, openbox and ratpoison.

What is the problem with KDE being more than enough? Just ignore, or uninstall, any bits that you do not need.

I mean... something, something needs to come out and stand for Linux, as a common, ubiquitous and modern DE. All I want is a solid, logical and easy interface to use. Even if devs copied Windows all way round, it would be much more achieving than just produce another 4 panel equipped DE.

How exactly is providing more than enough, given a comprehensive selection of desktop applications right within the desktop software collection, with better performance, security and user-configurability, with multiple desktops as a feature that Windows doesn't have, already not a great deal more achieving than just Windows?
