    It means that you will be able to download s stable version of Gnome Shell from the repos and switch between the two at the login screen. The reason this is not possible now with adding the PPA, is that Unity was ported to the GTK2 stack, because of the late release of Gnome 3.

    Re: Ubuntu Oneiric Ocelot now open for development

    I'm in this time. I've missed the last few versions, but I need to make sure things aren't left out of the next release. My main priorities will making sure there is an adequate replacement for 'Places' menu from the gnome2 panel and also making sure there is a quick and simple way to open applications. These are the two main issues I had with Unity so I'm going to push for a resolution on them.I had alot of bookmarked shares that I kept in 'Places' and it really frustrates me that I now need to click into nautilus first to access my bookmarks. I'm also having alot of issues multitasking with Unity and will be pushing for improvement in that.

    I've never been alpha-testing, and I really don't have time to do the whole "launchpad-committed" kinda testing atm.

    But I will give the alphas a whirl from time to time on my eee 901 and post some feedback. If Unity is going to change for the better it's going to happen in alpha.

    I hope we will see thorough GTK+3 and Gnome3 porting into Oneiric.
    It would make it easier to choose Gnome-shell for a personal desktop shell option.
    That is possible only if Unity (the default shell) is ported into GTK+3.

    If this Unity is stable by 12.04, it's going to need a LOT of testing between then and now. I can see that.

    Usually jump in with the late Alphas, time to get in at the start and try to help with the testing.
