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.

The computer can't hear ya! Too much noise ;) . And at that time, I think there's some security about whose voice can be used to operate the computer.

And for sensitive operations, we can use confirmation.
