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.

My usage log for Unity on Ubuntu 11.10 was something like the following:

1. Open a web browser and maximize
2. Browse
3. Go to click the back button
4. Unity bar pops up, I accidentally made Dash appear instead of clicking the back button
5. Click escape, click the back button more carefully, and continue browsing
6. Eventually try clicking "back" again, same thing happens
7. Look for setting to change the way the unity bar pops up -- there is none
8. Install gnome 3

Er... yeah, there is. o.O

Granted, one must open CCSM, and that tool is... complicated. But I kind of like all those options.

For my part, I've entirely forgotten that Unity prefers to "intellihide" the launcher at all. I hate it when bits of my UI hide themselves, so I have it set to always visible... meaning, I don't have the problems you describe.
