Default Unity - a Great Review

Just the conclusion made me laugh so much I spilled coffee all over my notes

I don't believe this has already been posted here but if it has, my apologies to the OP

Came across that page earlier and I did agree to the conclusion to a certain extent. Earlier we mentioned about Unity here.

A good point to start a thread here so that we can discuss more about Unity, which some already gave disapprovals.

Do you like the Unity Desktop?

In a word no

Especially if they can't get it a lot more stable before it goes into the main distro then I think it will lose Ubuntu a lot of fans. On the other hand, those coming to Linux new may well like this format, especially those already into mobile apps. I just hope that somehow there is an easy option to stick with the Gnome environment in later releases.

Ubuntu 11.04 (Ahpha 1) is now available for download and testing. Unity is the default session in this release.

"Unity is now the default in the Ubuntu desktop session. The Unity Launcher is now available; it can be used to launch applications that are pinned to the launcher and switch between running applications. It support quick lists on context menu. It can be set to auto-hide. Places is not yet available in alpha 1. Clicking the Ubuntu logo in the upper left of the screen will open the applications directory." -- Distro Watch.
