    The gnome shell replaces the gnome panel. They are not compatible. The Gnome project has stated that the gnome panel will be available during gnome 3. The gnome shell is only a part of gnome 3.

    I know that.

    I'm talking about the panel in GNOME Shell.

    Forgive my ignorance. I understand from Mark Shuttleworth's announcement that the Unity shipped with 11.04 will run compiz rather than Mutter.

    I just installed Unity from the repos and found that it is running Mutter.

    I presume there is a switch to Compiz planned -- is that correct? If so, when? I like the Unity interface, but also like my desktop effects!!

    Compiz and Mutter are not compatible, they do the same thing. The Unity in 10.10 uses Mutter. The plan is (I am not on the inside so I do not know the details) that in the next six months this will take place.

    Another thing I haven't tested, will it run as a virtual guest on common hyper-visors or virtualizers?

    The announcement was only made this morning, nothing will start happening until UDS-N is over.

    If you are interested in watching the process, I'd suggest waiting a couple of weeks, then install natty.

    Mutter needs more work because it is young. It will get plugins for effects but as usual, Canonical let everyone else do all the hard work and pick the easiest route with Compiz.


    All they need to do is make Compiz work with Unity, rather than make a modern window manager better.

    Read and learn before you speak.

    You are also assuming that Compiz isn't a modern window manager which simply shows your utter lack of general knowledge on the subject.

    That says nothing. Compiz does compositing with cool effects which was a stand in for metacity. Plugins toys don't make it modern.
