Linux "Ubuntu, once the darling of desktop Linux and the overwhelmingly popular choice for newcomers, may soon lose that role to Mint." I switched to Mint KDE, and have no intention of going back. By the way, KDE4 is finally good (don't hit me, Aaron) - fast, fluid, stable, pretty, and thanks to its versatility, a joy to use after a few hours of tweaking. Just... Please, unify Plasma and the regular widget style. This is insanity.

Ubuntu is only losing ground in the minds of those whith an irrational hatred of Ubuntu and Unity. (Because you know, GNOME 2 is so awesome...or not. Let's never innovate and take chances again. Surely the tech industry will benefit from that mindset). Making things up doens't make them true.


There are a lot of rational reasons to hate Unity, especially on low end machines. Innovation is fine, not being able to turn it off when it inhibits productivity is not.
