Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu As much as I dislike Unity, I commend the Ubuntu team and Shuttleworth for having the guts to try to innovate and bring the desktop forward (pretty much the exact same can be said of KDE4 and GNOME3). Shuttleworth has just announced yet another significant change for Ubuntu, and it's all about replacing the menu with a search interface dubbed the HUD.

Right. That is the feeling. When I just thought Unity was too much, now this... They are working harder to make people move away, it seems. And we will move away. Ubuntu will become a laughable toy, a reason for people to mock around how computing had to dumb down so low in order for people to operate a computer.

What we had 2 years ago was better than Unity or HUD. Plain simple Gnome with Ubuntu look and feel. Much better, easier to use. I prefer using my mouse (1 or 2 clicks) than having to type on my keyboard.
