  1. If Ubuntu sticks to Unity, count me out.

    Yeeep.
    Kubuntu is right way to go since year or two, I was giving ubuntu a try one for a while on gnome and – unity.
    I could accept gnome, but Unity is just below any reasonable scale of comfort of using operating system.

  2. I think unity will be around for some time guys. As long as Gnome 3 is an option, I’ll continue using it. however, if Canonical drops everything else in favor of unity, then I’ll have to find another distro.

  3. @Reza & Fokke: Canonical are very persistent with Unity. They’ve been developing it for more or less a year, and I doubt they’ll be about to drop it just because of criticisms, even though they derive from a majority of Ubuntu users.
    IMO, I believe they have invested too much on Unity to much abandon the project. They can only continue to develop and improve it. :)

    @Randy: Unity in 11.10 (and most probably 12.04) is running GNOME3. I think you’re mistaking Unity and GNOME3 as Desktop Environments.
    GNOME3 is a version the GNOME DE, with GNOME Shell as the default shell. Unity, however, is not a DE and has never been; it’s a shell, just like GNOME Shell.

  4. Unity isn’t so bad. I used it before and didn’t like it; but I just installed 11.04 and I was surprised at how much it has changed. It was a lot snappier now and the Expose-like features, although no original, makes me more productive.

  5. Wow. I’m not sure I understand the people that are acting like Ubuntu isn’t worth using if Unity is staying. There are a lot of distros to choose from, but I think some are missing a major point of choosing GNU/Linux as an OS — you get to choose how you want it. If you don’t like the desktop that comes with your distro then install a different one. If you don’t know how or don’t want to go through the trouble then try one of the derivatives. Kubuntu, Xubuntu, etc., are STILL Ubuntu underneath. It’s really not that hard.

  7. I’m ‘relatively’ new to Ubuntu – converted from Mandriva – and the concept of Unity seems to be a decent idea, but as with most things which are new to development, has it’s problems. Remember Linux was always the ‘geeks toy’ until the likes of Mandrake tidied up the install procedure thereby making it more ‘open’ to converts. Give it time, it will mature, and likely become a much more appreciated feature

  8. I love unity from release 11.10. For example, with unity you are very quick at the program or document you want. But it take me a while before i knew how ..!

    When you would like to search use the window button. When you don’t release you see at the left the programbar with a number in each program. So you choose the number you are there. When you don’t choose a number but release the window button you will get the “explorer” from ubuntu. And then type the program or document name you want. Or search with the options on the right side. It work so well… thanks a lot to Ubuntu!

  9. Unfortunately, Unity will remain Ubuntu’s top DE priority. Making matters worse, Gnome 3 is also lacking. Both of these factors are chasing many, many users to other DE’s that might not be quite to their satisfaction but are reasonable alternatives to 2 DE’s that absolutely fail in a bona fide workstation environment.

    If you are expecting Unity to eventually develop into a reasonable production environment desktop you are only trying to fool yourself. It’s layout is geared and intended for smaller appliances and for socialization. It’s not and never will be a true production desktop environment.

    I suspect Gnome is already discovering the need to revamp their Gnome3 offering back into something that has the configurability and ease of use that was present in Gnome2. There’s a rule: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Unfortunately, Gnome failed to follow that rule.
