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.

There's advantage if there's a menu system. We know what (the features, options, plugins, add-ons, etc.) exists/available in that application, i.e., In linux -> gedit, I know there's find, replace, select all, in 'edit' option. Without the menu, I just can guess what's edit options that available..

What made me happy about this is: Voice is the natural next step. Imagine we just speak, "edit, cut", or just plain, "cut", and it will be done.
