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).

First the ugly theme from hell and now a terrible desktop environment ?

Immediately after the 10.10 I needed to change that theme, still do not understand how something that horrific made it into the default install, where there pretty beautiful themes out there.

Also tried Unity for the first time... I can understand that something like that can work for netbooks, it didn't work for my TV since there's absolutely nothing to configure to make it workable on a 1080p desktop. As it looks now I cannot see how Unity would work at all on a desktop.
