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).

Full screen like that only makes sense if you have a lot of virtual desktops and even then only for certain kinds of apps. This is one reason I can't get used to ratpoison, for example: Sometimes I have a desktop with the GIMP on it and I want to drag windows around, resize them, etc. Sometimes I have a desktop with Firefox and I want it full screen all the time... except when I want to overlay e.g. an xterm on top so that I can read the page with examples and punch it in as I go.

Simple things are less complex then complex things, but they're also less complex! If this doesn't sound like nonsense to you then we should totally hang out.
