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."

(no vertical taskbar, really?)


You can add a vertical panel and put the taskbar on it in gnome. In fact, I can't remember any version where it hasn't been possible.

When you create a vertical panel with a taskbar, the taskbar does not rotate, or in anyway honor the vertical position of the panel, at least in Gnome 2.2x It is also a fixed size, so it does not use all available space.

This is a bug describing the issue, dating from 2002:
