Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Well, this is sure to raise a few eyebrows here and there. Today, at the Ubuntu Developer Summit, Mark Shuttleworth held his keynote speech, and in it, he announced that Ubuntu will switch to the Unity user interface come release, for both the netbook as well as the desktop, leaving the GNOME user interface behind (but keeping the GNOME platform).

MARKETING!

Microsoft, HP. ASUS, Samsung, Dell and many others... all marketing for Windows. Lots and Lots and Lots of money towards Marketing.

Apple, trumps on marketing value, they spend a lot less and don't have to try to force perspective.

Canonical and a few minor others are spending about 1% of the other group for Windows is and probably not getting the "value" out of it that Apple gets out of its budget.
