    Re: Ubuntu desktop to have Unity? What do you think?

    I hope Canonical sends Unity somewhere it can't find its way home from .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    Unity / GNOME Shell / Panels

    No matter what Canoncial decides, people will be outraged and act like it's the end of Ubuntu.
    If the only reason you think your software is better is because it's FOSS, you need to write better software

    To avoid stagnation.

    Anyway, I think both are good choices, though I'm more excited for Unity simply because Canonical would have direct control over it, and that it would introduce a third big player to the DE arena.

    What do you mean? To quote Jono Bacon:

    There is going to be some questions about this decision in relation to GNOME. I want to make something crystal clear: Ubuntu is a GNOME distribution, we ship the GNOME stack, we will continue to ship GNOME apps, and we optimize Ubuntu for GNOME. The only difference is that Unity is a different shell for GNOME, but we continue to support the latest GNOME Shell development work in the Ubuntu archives.

    Unity is a stand-in until GNOME 3.

    Re: Unity as default desktop

    According to Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/ubuntulinux) Unity is now officially been announced to be shipping with 11.04 (http://www.jonobacon.org/2010/10/25/...to-ship-unity/) but I will await more "Official" official news (besides, the second site doesn't even want to load for me)
