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).

Wow mods, lighten up please! Modding down the original comment by the original poster was questionable, and punitively modding down his other more elaborate comments is unfair, but modding down this third party for merely politely disagreeing with the previous poster is just silly.

Mod parent off topic. Hell, mod me off topic too!

Great grandpa was a troll. He did what trolls do. Saw GNOME in the title, and couldn't resist the urge to say teh GNOME sucks. Fair enough methinks. I mean the comment that follows it, and the -10 moderation.

The thread starter is arguably a troll, yes, but the post I replied to by nt jerkface was not and did not deserve any kind of negative mod.

I can't believe I'm defending nt jerkface... after all the mod points I've spent against him.

The problem is that Ubuntu has ditched the default Gnome desktop shell environment for one that it is creating itself. To a greater or lesser extent that means that the Ubuntu developers feel that Gnome sucks. This mess really does nothing to expose the parent of this thread as a troll. In fact, it gives him ammunition.

What with the question being raised regarding using Qt as a development platform for Ubuntu people need to be asking what the state of Gnome is when it comes to Ubuntu and why it isn't doing what they want.
