    KDE Gets Unity Like Interface In HomeRun Launcher

    This is NOT about another operating system. It seems KDE developers have liked what they've seen in Ubuntu's Unity so much - well we can say flattery or should that be necessity? is the mother of invention:

    Here is a mockup of what it might look like in the proposed HomeRunLauncher UI:

    Looks like a Unity-like clone may be soon be coming to KDE!

    KDE Plasma is awesome because It's so flexible. This allows them to implant the unity like interface in a separate plasmoid, where you can actually customize if you want to use the new launcher or not. That actually looks pretty sweet.

    Yeah but with KDE it'll (crucially) be optional and probably very tweakable. I think it looks nice as a launcher and I'd love to give it a try. But I've no doubt the regular KDE menu options will be available if I don't end up liking it. Like nerdopolis says above, KDE is so flexible. I don't see them throwing the baby out with the bathwater as perhaps Ubuntu did with Unity.

    Cool, then i can make a Unity, the way i believe it should be- not dictated to me, and not even have to leave KDE to do it

    I'll have to check this out; I bet my kids would like this on their KDE machine.

    I wonder if Kubuntu will try to adopt a unity-esque layout for its default desktop?

    More options is always good. Not sure if I'd use that, but who knows. It might be awesome.

    Yeh KDE has a lot of options. I won't use it but some people will probably like it. I prefer the traditional desktop.

    If they force it on everyone, that's bad news. One of the main reasons I like KDE is that it's not like Unity and more like the traditional desktop.
