Here we go again, the never ending debate
What do you want from Ubuntu between the long term releases ?
Stability would mean to follow Gnome releases one step behind.
Progression would mean to keep up the pace with the Gnome releases and use the current development version (which eventually will become 3.8 )
I personally would like progression because I use the UGR and would be sad to see UGR following Gnome one step behind Fedora.
I can understand, from the Ubuntu perspective, it would be better to follow one step behind and concentrate the development on Unity, but I dislike the fact that Unity will be locking the Gnome version in Ubuntu.
Maybe it's time to jump ship to follow Gnome ?
I used to love Ubuntu when Gnome was the default desktop, but that all changed with Unity.
What do you want from Ubuntu ? Gnome 3.6 or the current development version that will become 3.8 ?
