Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Register has posted a very unfavorable review of the new Ubuntu, focusing primarily on the new Unity Interface: "That's not to say there isn't much to love in Ubuntu 11.04 with the new Unity Interface being the primary news, but even for a beta this release is way too rough. Unity - regardless of what you think of it - isn't ready for prime time and it seems unlikely Canonical will iron out all its problems before the planned final release in April."

...anyone who pays even remote attention to what The Register has to say on any topic.


I do. The Reg is a great source for high end computing news (Timothy Prickett Morgan, etc) while also being hilarious. What's not to like? As for accuracy and respectability, well, I remember reading more BS and hype in the "respectable" 1990s printed computing press than I've ever read on The Reg.

Haven't read The Inq in a while though. Thinking about The Inq back when I used to read it regularly (early 2000s) reminds me of Aces Hardware...now that was a great site, but those were simpler times ;)
