    Re: Ubuntu desktop to have Unity? What do you think?

    While I personaly do not find the shell as useful as the existing desktop , as an alternative to Unity which I refuse to run even on my net book , Unity would be the straw this camel could not carry .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    Re: Unity as default desktop

    I think it would be great, as long as they fix the bugs and make it super-stable.
    The current GNOME desktop is ok, but i'm not a big fan of it. I prefer to have a dock and global-menu like Mac OS X and Ubuntu Unity.
    Unity also seems more "modern" then the current GNOME desktop which looks slightly outdated.

    Re: Ubuntu desktop to have Unity? What do you think?

    I've been running Gnome Shell as the primary desktop environment on my laptop almost since it became possible to install it and I love it. I've also used Unity on another machine and can tell you right now that I will never consider it a serious alternative to GS. If the discussion at UDS results in Unity on the desktop getting a thumbs up, I can tell you right now that the first customization I'll do on a new install will be to uninstall it.

    @ the OP I don't think that whoever wrote that blueprint ever played with the shell or the Mac desktop , I have a Mac and I run the shell on my testing install and they are much more alike than either is to Unity .

    Re: Ubuntu desktop to have Unity? What do you think?

    from the day i upgraded from lucid to maverik, i was honestly awed with the default unity net book edition menus and the global menu.

    i have one problem, the global menu title thats displayed in the main panel has just 9 chars. for example if i m using file browser, it says file. if i use appearance app, it displays appearanc and so on.

    secondly global menu does not support firefox and some other apps. the file menu is in the browser and not in the panel as is required in global menu.

    3rdly i wish to rename my file browser to nautilus (like Finder in Mac) any clue how one does it ?

    any idea how to solve this ?

    Why should there even be a change?

    I actually doubt it will be the default by the next release however I am all for it. Unity smoothed out will be an awesome environment.

    I hope Canonical sends Unity as an upstream contribution to Gnome.
