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.

Yet another copy cat idea from Mac OS X

Wow Mark/Ubuntu, can't you actually be original for once! Not only are you trying to clone the Mac OS X interface, now this too. Mac OS X has had this "search for a function or feature" behaviour since forever. Every application has this search under the Help menu (first item) - type some text and a nice big blue arrow points to the found item in a auto opened menu. Also search the whole OS using the Search button in the top right of your Mac screen.

I am a big fan of Ubuntu 10.04, but as usual, all releases after that are getting worse and worse.
