Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu As much as I dislike Unity, I commend the Ubuntu team and Shuttleworth for having the guts to try to innovate and bring the desktop forward (pretty much the exact same can be said of KDE4 and GNOME3). Shuttleworth has just announced yet another significant change for Ubuntu, and it's all about replacing the menu with a search interface dubbed the HUD.

Why aren't buttons good enough?

How many programs actually need more than a couple of buttons? For the most common programs I use (text editor, file browser, web browser, image viewer, IDE, etc.) all the features I use are buttons (or keyboard short cuts.) So I've never seen a need for a menu system, they just take longer than a button or shortcut.
