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.

... and I've been using it for at least the last four years or so. The whole Unity thing has been very poorly handled. They brought it in and basically said "this is how things are gonna be - take it or leave it."
Sounds like a lot of people are "leaving it" (me included). It was "change for the sake of the developers", not for the good of users.
The interface of Gnome 2 was fine, and that's all that mattered to me (and many others).
Time to try Kubuntu or Xubuntu.
