Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ah, it's that time of the year again. We already had this up on the sidebar, but I figured we'd turn it into a proper front page item - mostly because I want to discuss the move by the Ubuntu team to no longer install GNOME 2 as the 'classic' desktop option - which pretty much ends any and all involvement for me with Ubuntu (KDE 4 here I come). There's more to this than just that, of course, so those of you who do like Unity still have enough reason to upgrade.

Surprised

I'm actually somewhat surprised at the Unity hate here.

I TOTALLY get the Gnome 3 hate, and Unity circa 11.04 hate... but this new one is everything the first one should have been. Nary a crash or memory leak in nearly a week's worth of continual use, and all the functional things I didn't like have been addressed.

I wonder if its just the whole "but I can't put launcher on the *bottom*!" thing, or what. I think it is quite good, now my favorite (over Win7, OSX, and any other Linux desktop).
