Editorial Like many of you, I've been watching the big changes in user interfaces over the past few years, trying to make sense of them all. Is there a common explanation for the controversies surrounding the Windows 8 UI and Unity? Where do GNOME 3, KDE, Cinnamon, and MATE fit in? This article offers one view.

Unity has a couple major sins that makes me say no to it.

1 While I do not mind global menu fits law bad all that jazz I hate the fact that it vanishes do not remove vital controls from the screen it is off putting.

2 said menus consistancy most apps have the standard file edit tools layout the new nautilus and a couple othe apps it is now all filed as a single menu when you click the applications name this also stinks

3 the Ubuntu dictatorship at one time unity's launcher was able to dodge windows the poweres that be decided they did not like that behavior so they removed it completely and said F you to users that liked it.

Lastly the dash is inconsistent and now riddled with spyware.


Lastly to vent my spleen at "modern UI" in general it is all too large by default with the tools removed so you have to rely on a third party tool or a configurations file hack to set it to a decent size.

sorry butt thesis silly on a desktop computer I want my screen real estate to display information not oversized widget cruft.
