Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ah, it's that time of the year again. We already had this up on the sidebar, but I figured we'd turn it into a proper front page item - mostly because I want to discuss the move by the Ubuntu team to no longer install GNOME 2 as the 'classic' desktop option - which pretty much ends any and all involvement for me with Ubuntu (KDE 4 here I come). There's more to this than just that, of course, so those of you who do like Unity still have enough reason to upgrade.

I have to admit, I'm not totally sold on the look and feel. With some tweaks though, I think it might be OK.

At least it's different though. I totally approve of the moves MS and Unity are making away from the god-damned start menu + desktop icons paradigm.

Might not be perfect initially, but you gotsta try new things right?

No. You have to complain a lot about how GNOME/KDE mimics windows and when they do something difference you gotta complain that it's different.

Heretic! Haven't you heard? The almighty Shuttleworth has declared Unity shall not have any user set-able configurations. Like, say the ability to set the dock to the bottom of the screen...
