    Very good poster indeed. Wish I had seen it when I first saw Unity.

    I'm slightly worried that your LTS people might all find it an enormous jump from the Gnome 2 in 10.04 to the Unity of 12.04, regardless how good it is turning out to be. If there is anyone who just can't handle it, are they going to get the choice of using gnome_panel (pretty much the same as Gnome 2 in 10.04)? I sometimes switch back to it and it is good to have the choice.

    Will the installation also include MyUnity so that things like Show Desktop and hide the launcher are available? The poster might mention it?

    Great job!

    Perfect for introducing my mom to Ubuntu 12.04.

    Don't have any feedback yet because I am too used to the interface but my mom may provide that once she starts using Unity.

    Hello All

    Thanks for feedback once again...

    @freechelmi:Thats wonderful. Link to ODP below, but I'll be having a rethink on Sunday, so I would not do a lot of work yet unless you want to 'fork' the poster. I would suggest perhaps using the French terminology found in the Ubuntu Desktop Guide for your installation if possible, and it might be worth taking on board Mr Picklesworth's point about 'menu bar' instead of 'top bar'. It strikes me that you may need to re-do a few of the screen shots as well so they are in French. I'm using the 'default' appearance as it ties in with Canonical 'branding'. I'll be using a CC licence on this thing when its finished, so share ODT, do what you want &c, but can you not directly attribute your work to me? 'Modified from' or 'Based on' is great, or just don't worry about attribution at all.

    @JHCKX: I'll reword the Dash section and emphasise that you launch apps not found in the Launcher through the Dash by searching, Thanks for heads up

    @Paddy Landau: The windows key: Ubuntu Desktop Guide uses the word 'meta'. Apple keyboard (at least on Ruth's old iBook) has the Alt key where the Windows key is, and an Apple or Option key next to the space bar. I'm seriously thinking of resorting to small photographs in version 3 of the poster. The keyboard thing is odd, I've checked on two computers and several different plug-in keyboards and Alt-F10 just does the same as F10 on all combinations. I'm doing a fresh install in a bit I think.

    @jerrylamos and @JHCKX: This isn't about what I like, its about what people out there may have to contend with when the 10.04 -> 12.04 switchover takes place in each site that uses Ubuntu on client machines. Me? I'll probably shuffle back onto dwm/dmenu once 12.04 is bedded in. Imagine doing a poster for dwm It would be like that Gnome 4 joke on April 1.

    @ld114: I don't support anyone except me, I'm just finding ways of using what skills I have to head off what I think is going to be a lot of noise when 12.04 gets released!

    Paddy - I have a friend who is a mac user and long ago he called it splat for lack of a better name. Now every mac owner he knows calls it that. I think it is funny that it really doesn't have a real distinct name.

    That is a lovely name. I have just discovered that it is called the "Command" key.
