Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The Register has posted a very unfavorable review of the new Ubuntu, focusing primarily on the new Unity Interface: "That's not to say there isn't much to love in Ubuntu 11.04 with the new Unity Interface being the primary news, but even for a beta this release is way too rough. Unity - regardless of what you think of it - isn't ready for prime time and it seems unlikely Canonical will iron out all its problems before the planned final release in April."

...anyone who pays even remote attention to what The Register has to say on any topic.

*raises hand*

I actually like The Register because they have the balls to slam companies and products when they deserve it. Not to mention, their writing style is amusing... I have a sense of humor, and I don't believe in kissing everyone's and every company's ass (no, I'm not a Christian... no "love everyone and respect everything" bullshit here).

It's refreshing since all the other sites and news reporters in general try to be politically correct, reviewing products and talking about companies in the most positive way, completely ignoring all faults as if they don't exist. This often leads to buying a product and realizing you just wasted money on a piece of shit, which is not cool.

...as it proves the fact their reporters have been banned from entering the Garden of the forbidden fruit :-P (which has them gain several reputation points from me)
