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).

Mod this off topic too!

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.

I see. It must be your conscience then ;) I widely disagree with some of his comments, sometimes argue with him, very rarely mod people down. I haven't checked your moderation balance, but when I see people whose moderation is <50% positive, I always think that those are the kind of people that use moderation as a way of expressing disagreement. Not cool. As a rule, I only moderate someone down if he is factually wrong and misleading on purpose, and typical flamebaits of course.

I only mod down if I think the comment has absolutely no merit and should not be read by anyone. Information hiding is a vile sin as to abuses the freedoms of others.
