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."

I've never experienced good beta quality from Ubuntu. If you use Firefox's beta as a reference, Ubuntus is extremely poor.

Unity is not an improvement for the desktop. And in combination with the extreme instability of Compiz and the linux graphics driver situation, choosing a bleeding edge kernel may not be the wisest of choices.

As the article mentions, you are able to choose the ubuntu classic desktop before logging in and you can even pick a 'no effects' version of it, which seemed stable.
