    Re: Unity as default desktop

    As nlsthzn suggested it's already been decided: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/10/u...fault-desktop/

    The transformation is now complete. The personal computer has been transformed into an appliance. Gnome and KDE were headed there anyway so why not just leapfrog them both.

    No, it would seem Unity is now going to be used instead of Gnome 3...

    Yep, looks like it. Unity for 11.04 Desktop Edition, people! Could a mod please rename the thread?

    I don't think it will really transform the desktop version much, since I fully expect it to be a very customized version of Unity, possibly with only the Launcher and top panel, keeping the GNOME desktop with shortcuts and everything.

    Also, if it isn't themeable, I'll be disappointed.

    BTW, it looks like most people overlooked some good news:

    It will be based on COMPIZ, and thus fully compatible with the existing plugins, keeping it alive despite GNOME Shell's efforts to kill it off

    +1.

    I think I'm going to Xubuntu with Natty.

    Most of us have tried the netbook edition, so I think he means that he's looking forward to trying the Desktop Edition

    I'm sure Gnome 2.XX will still be in the repos, so no need to do that unless you prefer XFCE

    Well, if I want to record 3D video games better, Xubuntu may as well be my choice, without compositing on, but with 3D Drivers.

    This could be a brilliant idea assuming that the Unity released with 11.04 is better than the version released in 10.10. The 10.10 version is buggy and very very slow.
