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.

I preface this by admitting that I don't know anything - I came across this article because I'm interested in Ubuntu's possibilities.

I followed the link and read thesunnyk's fascinating article about ideas for Gnome 4 http://blog.quaddmg.com/2013/6/14/ideas-for-gnome-4/ which made sense: if, as Verenkeitin says, a relatively small percentage of the app's algorhythm is the function and the rest is form, then arguably the function should be common, and the form customisable by the needs of the machine (a different common). Surely that means different flavours of the same milkshake for different computers?
