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.

Wait, so Ubuntu 11.04 doesn't even have GNOME 2 *at all*? It only has a GNOME3 fail-safe made to mimic GNOME 2, which was meant for those users who don't have adequate (read: 3D) graphical processing power to run full-fledged GNOME 3... and this is an alternative to Unity? Wow... just wow. As if it didn't already lose my interest, Ubuntu is looking worse and worse every time I hear something about it.

First of all none of gnome3 is in 11.04. Clasic Mode and Clasic Mode (no effects) is gnome 2.32.? without unity on top however, Clasic Mode still uses Compiz (3d) while Clasic Mode (without effects) is using Metacity (2d) instead, these will eventually be droped with the later being replaced with Unity 2D (QT based).
