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.

When I go to a restaurant I want a menu, very first thing. Before they take my drink even, because otherwise I'm going to ask for a Mountain Dew, and they won't have it. Then they'll suggest a Sprite, and I'll tell them that's absurd. Next I'll ask for a Dr. Pepper and they'll suggest root beer. At that point I'll roll my eyes in disgust and ask for a Coke, then they'll bring a mother fraking Pepsi, and I'll have to try my hardest not to choke a %%%%%. Also, I don't want to have to memorize the damn menu.

Bonus command lines, whether initiated at the top, keyboard activated or triple right clicked, whatever is fine..... as a bonus. Don't take away or hide my menu! Also, buttons should also be bonuses since I have no idea what the "man with arms flailing" icon means. All of which should be configurable on/off whatever in settings/options/preferences.
