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.

Whining and bitching

Jesus what a bunch of whiners we are.
So here's how it goes then: OSS should really innovate more...EXCEPT if they innovate in a direction that I, the mighty expert on everything, deem not necessary or just don't like. Then it's so wrong it's a miracle we made it out of the primordial soup all those years ago.
Few actual come up with a more interesting criticism than "Uh, point and click rules...cuz I say so". Maybe this doesn't work out, maybe it doesn't even make it into a release but who fscking cares? Innovations doesn't always pan out but that doesn't mean we should stop innovating.
Maybe we should just go back to ENIAC?
Me? I hope they make something similar for KDE. I can never remember any keyboard shortcuts so being able to access them this way seems great.

Now you just got it wrong. ENIAC? I think you went way back in the past. I don't think you measure a balance of what people are trying to say, and you respond every comment criticizing everyone back.

Innovation will be always good, when it makes sense. But I don't think I'm interested in having sex with my own computer. I've seen a machine like that in 'Minority Report', perhaps you're up for that kind of innovation too?

Not really, no.

Apparently I and others think it does make sense.

But I don't think I'm interested in having sex with my own computer.


Yeah, because THAT is a balanced comparison to the Canonical HUD...
