Editorial Like many of you, I've been watching the big changes in user interfaces over the past few years, trying to make sense of them all. Is there a common explanation for the controversies surrounding the Windows 8 UI and Unity? Where do GNOME 3, KDE, Cinnamon, and MATE fit in? This article offers one view.

Yeah, honestly I think kind of stupid to not allow users to move the dock around. At this point I haven't heard one single argument favoring it.

I do recognize that you can get used to it on the left side fine and it works fine, but it's probably far more important to make users that come from another OS feel at home instead of alienating them.

At this point, Shuttleworth seems more focused on the product than on it's user base, but that can't last forever and at some point he will have to start worrying about pleasing it's supporters again to get more of a following, or Ubuntu will fade to irrelevance.
