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.

And Ubuntu continues to slide in the rankings on Distrowatch.

I understand the concept of picking a direction and going with it but Shuttleworth is GOING THE WRONG WAY!.

He is obviously a fan of the Mac OS X GUI, and is trying to replicate it, and tries to improve it where he sees fit. There is nothing wrong with that; the Linux/GNU landscape only gets more interesting with a little more diversity.

Something tells me that Distrowatch is not a diagnostic that people who want their distros to be used by the masses would pay attention to...
