    I don't vote in public polls. Unity does appear to have its uses. It looks much better on netbooks than the original netbook menus. I am happy with the current version of gnome and prefer it to gnome shell, so hopefully we aren't forced to use it. If we are, then I might have to switch to Xubuntu or Lubuntu. KDE is out of the question for me.

    Re: Unity as default desktop

    So it's official now, eh?
    Let's see how it works out, we'll get a good idea during Natty beta.
    Thankfully it will use Compiz not the buggy mutter.

    I think Mutter was actually the major reason for the complaints about it being slow on netbooks in 10.10, since both it and Gnome Shell perform equally unsatisfactorily on my girlfriend's netbook.

    For those that would actually like to read what the lead Unity dev has to say have a look here. It seems mutter will be dropped in favour of compiz.

    I'm wondering what this means for Mutter. Its speed hasn't improved much since I first tried GNOME Shell.

    Compiz performs a thousand times better than mutter on my pc.
    I'm all for Unity if it keeps compiz on.

    And the gnome-shell developers are a bit hard to communicate with. They are preoccupied with their ideas and have been quite resistant to valid feedback in the past. I believe canonical first tried to work with them but found it impossible.

    Unity on a 3 monitor set up will be atrocious.

    Having used neither , I have say whatever works. The old Gnome Shell screen shots are horrid but it is improving and having Unity on a desktop seems a bit strange. Web Upd8 claims Unity has been chosen as default in 11.04.

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

    Why not? I have my fingers crossed. It might result in a great decision and we may be saying to developers 'thumbs up' in April 2011. I think they should yet reconsider about providing an option to choose the environment to make the process of transition smoother and i am just having this feeling that they are going to do so.

    I am thinking about giving unity a try on present setup (10.04 LTS) . Well u can also give Unity a try. The link below contains the ppa repository so u can just give it a try. I am thinking about giving it a try
