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).

Every corporation lies. They all say neat stuff like "we take care of our customers" and "we are ever so nice". They all lie and take guesses at what people will accept.

I'd say that's overly cynical. There are plenty of corporations that simply make a product and sell it. They don't bother with deceptive marketing or p.r. doublespeak.


Chill out, sit back and enjoy the show. Me, I hope they succeed. It would be nice to see something like this take off. ;)

Oh I was never emotionally agitated, I just don't like how Shuttleworth portrays his company as community centered.

Yeah, maybe I am a bit cynical. ;) Not saying that every company deliberately goes out to do evil deeds, just saying that they may do some from time to time. Some more than others, granted. But I just tend to expect less from corporations than I do from individual humans. Just saying. ;)
