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.

... but not that impressive.

I guess it would be OK if this behaviour were somehow user selectable.

I am thinking "feel" (as in look&feel) plug-ins or something. HUD menus would then be one option, another might be something more suitable to HTPCs (remote controls) and so on...
