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).

It will be a big hit on the desktop too

What makes you think this? People using non-toy computers for real work are going to want a highly functional non-toy interface.

Oh wait, I get it. GNOME already had a toy interface so its users won't notice! That explains a lot.

I said "Flame on" not "Mod me down" - you'll never get a good flame war going if you don't reply and tell me I'm full of shit.

Don't sweat it. It's just the Ubuntu kiddies.

Their small brains just can't comprehend that Ubuntu is becoming ever more marginalised by Canonical's feeble attempts to get it more widely used, and Gnome is seriously fragmenting because they can't accept that it won't do what they want it to do.
