Linux Yeah, it's the day of double-dippin' today. And, the contradiction couldn't be bigger. In one corner we have one of the oldest and most respected distributions, and in the other corner we have the sometimes controversial but immensely popular relative newcomer. Slackware 13.37 and Ubuntu 11.04 have been released.

Been running Ubuntu 11.04 since the first beta, and I am really liking it. Though I do have and Fedora 15 install for Gnome (Shell) 3, I do prefer Unity for my production, but that doesn't mean I don't like Gnome Shell. I like that they are different, and that they are a departure from the conventional Gnome desktop.

Same here, although I fall more into the Gnome camp than the Unity side. After getting used to the Gnome 3 virtual desktop handling I'm finding it hard to go back... it took quite a while to wrap my brain around the new setup but it really does feel more natural.

Kudos to Unity though for actually working in Virtualbox and cleaning up massively since those godawful alpha releases.
