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.

kubuntu = ubuntu - unity + kde
xubuntu = ubuntu - unity + xfce

So is some one going to create a derivative of

ubuntu -unity +gnome3 = ?

The Gnubuntu.com/ Gnubuntu.org domain is already redirecting to ubuntu because it was going to be a fsf approved version according to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=312280.

So Anyone think there will be a demand for it, or will ubuntu-gnome fans just move to a different distro. ?

I would first try it out and I suggest others to do so too.

I'm not so sure GNOME3 might be what I want either, it is kind of similair in my opinion.

So I'm just gonna try them out first and decide later.

If I don't like it, I'll probably be on Xfce.

I still have my hopes up for E17 being released too. :-)

The libraries recently turned 1.0 and were declared stable so it could happen, right ?
