Graphics, User Interfaces As an answer to someone asking whether Unity will require a working OpenGL stack to operate in Ubuntu 11.04 "Natty Narwhal", Mark Shuttleworth announced that Canonical would offer an optional, QT-based, "2D" implementation of Unity. Here is a video, too.

It's exactly as unattractive as the 3D version. And it'll have the bonus of pulling QT into RAM for a primarily GTK-based application-set, so future Ubuntu users will get to enjoy default memory bloat regardless of whether they have 3D support or not.

No, those who have 3D support won't bother using this and will be using Unity 3D instead without even knowing that Unity 2D is there.
