    I agree with Mikeb85 : I want more customizations options in 12.04 but having them or not has nothing to deal with the "principles on what the free software movement was founded on"

    So, i didn't vote

    Unity's just great with one window open. Playing hide and seek with multiple windows' menus is not my idea of a fun time. Nor a productive one either.
    Yes and yes!

    That second point is what prompted me to use Gnome Shell instead of Unity on my desktop machine - it's more intuitive and natural to flip between windows and apps there than it ever was in Unity, in fact, i'm actually finding it faster to work this way than i ever did in 'doze or Gnome 2!

    Unity is great on small screens though (IMO).

    For those of you who are on my side, it looks like our wish has been granted! LOOK: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/11/u...nfigurability/
    Now the thing on the agenda is to get these new features all implemented for the LTS release.

    I do wish it had more customization options, but It has nothing to do with free software principals.

    I really don't see why they couldn't add customization options, it wouldn't make it any harder to use for people who just want something simple that works.

    I think Unity is going in a good direction, and I hope to see more from that department. That being said, I'm extremely doubtful Unity will ever be "good enough" to pry Gnome Shell from my hands. That's just my opinion, though. I think Unity is solid, I just don't love it quite as much as Gnome Shell.

    Some Lenovos have a whitelisted BIOS which prevents you from changing the wifi card.
