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.

Out of curiosity do you use any keyboard shortcuts when using your computer?

No, I don't. Well, usually I use CTRL-C, CTRL-V or CTRL-Z, but that's about it.

I thought the user interface was to minimize the need of typing. I agree that searching sub-menu trees is kind of boring. I just tried to find an option in Inkscape today, and it cost me 1 or 2 minutes. However, I don't see any kind of better usability. It's like switching dozen in exchange for twelve. Perhaps the RIBBONS were a better idea than this, but more typing or talking to the computer is kind of pointless.
