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.

I think this is awesome!

Although it seems logical to put this at the top like traditional menus, I think they should try putting it at the bottom of the screen.

They already have the similar looking Dash at the top, and displaying the HUD at the bottom would make it less likely to obscure things you need to see (which is not an issue for the Dash because you are switching apps anyway).
