zima pondered...

It's because of Unity that Ubuntu just started to dig its grave

?


To put it in words that those who've been around the Alternate operating Systems scene a while would understand, Canonical's "Unity" is the equivalent of Be's infamous "focus shift" shortly before it went under.

Worse actually, because their Gnome 2.xx desktop was becoming the standard Linux desktop for many users and their "focus shift" has led to them sacrificing existing users in exchange for potential users.
