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 too can't really understand why everyone hate Unity so much. I really like the simplicity of pressing Win key, typing app name (or part of it) and hitting Enter. I was waiting for this all my life (-. This feature alone was one of the best improvements in Windows Vista/7. And it works with file/folder names too!
Now for some advanced usage I always have Guake terminal installed. Just hit F12 and you have instant shell with tabs. Hit F11 and you are fullscreen.
Keyboard shortcuts are another thing worth memorizing. It just makes everything so much faster.
