    Makes sense to me. Make the simplest easy to use GUI as default. Advanced users can then pick something else if they like. Thats the joy with Linux! I bet they end up releasing a gubuntu (kubuntu is kde version) with gnome as default anyway!

    Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth has announced at the Ubuntu Developers Summut (via ComputerWorld) that future desktop releases of the OS will default to the new Unity interface.
    If by "default" Marky means that there will be some easy-to-get-at switch that gives back "ye olde fashioned desktoppe", then that's fine with me. Better still if Unity is an option on login or user setup.

    Nooooooooooooooooooooo - that's just what the world needs - yet another respin of Ubuntu.

    Actually joking apart, I was quite impressed with Unity on my netbook, at least until I came across the interface that ships with Meego. That one seems to be more responsive, more attractive and hence nicer to use than Unity. That said, I was one of the folks that moved their Lynx buttons back to the right-hand side - so maybe I'm not the best judge.

    At this rate, I'll be replacing my current Ubuntu installs with "raw" Debian...

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...
