    I tried Unity today.
    I didn't like it.

    Moving to Unity is a mistake.

    Re: Unity to be included as part of the default desktop installation

    I really have no idea what the Unity desktop will look like . I think comparing it to the current netbook version may be a premature assessment . There will be plenty of photos on blogs as 11.04 gets closer. I will wait and see.

    I just read/heard today it will be available to download Gnome from the software center. Also if your gpu driver doesn't support Unity it will use Gnome.

    Having tried Unity for a couple of days, my first thoughts were that is was impressive and yet sluggish. Unless they drastically make improvements to it then yes making the move to Unity will be a mistake.

    Just because you have more beans than I, it does not mean you know more.

    As long as there is an auto-hide feature for the sidebar I think I could learn to like it. If not, I'll be replacing it with AWN which I currently use. We'll see.

    Re: Unity to be included as part of the default desktop installation

    I can live with Unity but only if it speeds up a bit! My experience indicates that it is slow. Of course, I'm not using a final version.

    I can see the appeal of a sidebar that disappears as needed.

    My guess is that there will be alternatives available if we can't live with Unity!

    Dear arapaho,

    I speak under the control of the others, but I believe that Zeitgeist has been dropped from Gnome-Shell and that is one of the things that displeased Canonical, which was a strong supporter of the new feature.

    In relation to the need of an "undo" feature in Nautilus, I couldn't agree more.

    Re: Unity to be included as part of the default desktop installation

    I was a mild supporter of Unity, I was not impressed with its performance and it seemed a bit buggy. Turns out there was a problem with my hardware that required a workaround with clutter upstream. My Intel Mobile needed me to add this line (no quotes) "export CLUTTER_VBLANK=none" to /etc/environment.

    I did this to get nautilus-elementary to work, and noticed, well clutterflow uses clutter like unity, so would unity benefit? Yes it did. Performance is fast, and the bugs are gone. It is still a little iffy interface wise in it's current state, but when it is working fast(er) for me it is totally usable.

    I am not advertising it or anything, its just my main reasons for not liking the current Maverick Unity was how long it took to load the menu and to play with the dock. It is not perfect, but it works. I will look forward to the compiz re-write, as compiz works fine on Intel graphics hardware.

    Re: Unity to be included as part of the default desktop installation

    I upgraded one of my desktop systems to natty and installed unity. I'm surprised how well in runs, but the interface is clunky on a desktop system.

    System specs:

    • AMD 3200+ single core
    • 1 Gb ram
    • Nvidia 8400Gt
