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."

One thing though - why the fcuk is everything so huge? I have a 24" display - no need for My First UI Elements(tm), please.

My bet: Touchscreen friendliness.

It'll take some more decades before computer UIs are finally able to adapt themselves seamlessly to various input and output resolutions. At least, if everything is huge on a modern display, it means that they are thinking in centimeters/inches instead of pixels, which is already one step forward.
