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.

Yep. Agreed 100%. But that's not the end of it; apparently there's already talks of ditching Debian's standard package format and package management system for something of their own creation. And it will bring more wasted disk space through redundancy to eliminate supposed dependency problems. Supposedly it is intended to accompany the standard system as a second method to install packages, but let's be serious, this is Canonical here... it can automatically be assumed that they will eventually force their special vision of package management upon their users. By that point, the distribution will barely even resemble Debian.
