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).

Since gnome3 has been in development there have been all these things Ubuntu have developed that don't fit in with the progress/changes/ideas behind gnome3.

-Application/System Indicators
-Notify OSD

They're just tailoring Gnome to fit their own purposes and that's fine. They could ship with awesome by default if they wanted. It's not like they're ditching everything, that would mean more work than Ubuntu could handle.
