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.

Wow Mark/Ubuntu, can't you actually be original for once! Not only are you trying to clone the Mac OS X interface, now this too. Mac OS X has had this "search for a function or feature" behaviour since forever.


Yes it does, but that shouldn't be a reason to not implement it. It is imperative to copy/use good ideas in order to evolve.

I guess my problem with the latest Ubuntu releases are that the cloning of Mac features are done so badly [and blatantly], it just makes Ubuntu worse and worse. If I wanted a Mac OS X interface so badly, I would simply buy a Mac and get the real thing.

Shuttleworth should really take a look at DistoWatch. Ubuntu is spiraling down the ranks - release after release [since 10.04]. That should be a good indicator that they are heading in the wrong direction.
