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).

Unity's current implementation is lacking, but from my understanding, that is mostly due to mutter. switching to compiz should help clear up a lot of issues.

That said, Unity's _concept_ is pretty great, and clearly different than gnome-shell. I think the decision was the correct one, and this is coming from a guy that is wary of canonical.
