Re: Unity on 12.04 - and alternative desktop environments
I dont get what the Unity-hate is about, i think its a very nice UI, and i do not see any reason for not using it. The keyboard shortcuts are absolutely great, and the "hud" is awesome.
you're asking for reasons why to use unity, i almost feel like asking why the hell not? but i realize its a matter of preference, i have just honestly not heard many valid reasons for disliking it. comments like: "It just stinks" are not valid.
I find it to be very responsive, and very awesome to use. the thing i mostly dislike about it is that it is so damn hard to make your own working launchers, but to me thats no different from gnome 2.x
