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.

I will admit that I've never really known about keyboard shortcuts, I've never had the need to find out. And yep, I've used computers since I was 12. Is that a failing on my part? Not really, I just never figured there was such a thing as a keyboard shortcut, and I never had the need to find out.

So, when I saw what Ubuntu had come up with in their HUD thingy, I thought what a good idea. First initial reaction was 'What the?' but after giving it a go I can see what their doing and at the moment I like it.
Certainly saves on mousing, and things seem to be quicker as well. Looking forward to the voice tech and seeing if that works well.
