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.

Goodbye Ubuntu

I am truly tired of Canonical's attempts to reinvent the wheel. Every release is different... and not in a good way. This last release broke by SanDisk USB thumb drive that always worked before under Ubuntu. And now the menus have this hidden little scroll thingie that disappears until you hover the mouse over it. It's awkward and difficult to use. I guess it's an improvement that the Upgrade button didn't freeze my system like last time.

I don't bother to upgrade my Ubuntu systems any more. I've switched to the more stable, professional openSUSE. I think Shuttleworth & Co. spent too much time at the Windows both last time they went to a tech conference.
