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.

Is Canonical on crack?!?

After reviewing HUD and reading Canonical's plans for implementing it I have to wonder what in the world these developers are smoking. How can typing commands possibly be easier than pointing and clicking. This is a prime example of creating a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. There's a reason why menus go all the way back to Xerox's original GUI interface...they WORK! I guess Canonical won't be happy until Ubuntu loses the rest of its user base to Linux Mint and Debian.
