Ubuntu should have its own flagship DE, whatever its name, not someone else's.
    Yes I understand this. It is a hard coded file and I need to see if I can merge it or use another command to 'get' the version number. I actually worked on this during 12.04 development, to prempt the <lsb_release -a> after version code was updated but I dropped it because it was a closed team at that time, I could work a hack on my own box but it wasn't implemented. There are tons of issues and guaranteed there will be more come 18.04.

    It will break.

    Did you simply change /usr/share/unity-control-center/ui/UbuntuLogo.png?
    Also, do you think 18.04 would break Unity?

    Edit: I'll keep on using 17.10 only with Unity to see how far it'd live on. I am using it now all the time, without using other Ubuntu 17.10 (Openbox, Xubuntu, KDE) installs. They get upgraded once a week. Ubuntu Unity 17.10 gets upgraded everyday, if any available.

    I very much doubt that. Probably got more important things to worry about.

    But given that they're not using it now - they probably don't care much, other than dealing with it in currently released versions. Hence the comments from Canonical people at the beginning of this which pretty much said - if you want to use it, maintain it. If it ends up with no maintainers from the community then it'll go the way of anything else that is unmaintained.

    I guess that it will end up in Universe.

    You've answered my post just before I edited it. I deleted that line you quoted as an unnecessary one. Sorry to trouble you.

    Yes. That was a simple maintain. I had thought it was being called from the system but it is called from a .png file. If it ain't broke, don't fix it I'll have to wait most likely until end of this cycle to see what list Will Cooke will send me up. I got two solid and experienced persons to help me. It may take more and I am sure others will jump in.

    Well we are at least hoping for that much. We will know more in the coming weeks. I know your hands are full with xubuntu but you are certainly invited to join the team.
