Unity is ubuntu, and imo is a failed project. I'd take Gnome 3.0 over it any day and I hate Gnome 3.0 almost just as bad. Gnome 3.0/Unity to me both seem like they belong on a tablet and not a desktop. And for users that like staying up to date with upstream, they have no choice. If we stick with Gnome 2.0, we get left in the dust and forgotten about. This is supposed to be Linux where we aren't forced to to change if we don't want to (but if we don't in this case, then we don't exist).

Gnome 3.0/Unity were the 2 biggest reasons that I made a decision to move to tiling desktops permanently.

The direction that Ubuntu is heading, is the main reason why I jumped ship.
My last Ubuntu distro was 9.04. Ever since, I have been using Ubuntu based distros, but lightweight ones such as Linux Mint LXDE.

Yeah there are things that should be forced to be changed but DEs aren't one of them. Hardware is what I wish more time and "force" was put into. I'm constantly amazed at how randomly things fall apart regardless of distro with the most limited of hardware change(attach an external CD drive and ALSA dies even though they're unrelated).

To be frank, I've never liked Ubuntu. Not even pre 8.x versions and certainly not now with Unity et al

Switching over to KDE was the best thing I could have done. After the disaster that GNOME 3.0 was I couldn't go back.

EDIT: I also love the fact that Arch Linux gives you the option to install the minimum packages required to run the DE. No more crappy programs that I will ever use biggrin.gif

I liked Ubuntu when they were still using Gnome 2. Now that they have hopped onto the Unity train, they have lost my support. I used Ubuntu Unity for a while and it was cumbersome, and buggy. Even though they still have good support and a large user base, making such a radical change was a move for the worse.

Welcome to the wonderful world of barebone distro's. You get what YOU want and ONLY what YOU want.

But then what's the point. You're stuck in Gnome 2 which quite frankly as nice as it is, is dead in the water now. No one's developing on it anymore which means no more advancements or improvements. Sure forks like Mate will help, but in the end, nothing's going to happen. Everyones already either accepted Gnome 3.0/Unity and start dev'ing on them. Or they've switched to another DE/WM. Which makes Gnome 2 beyond dead. Most stuff like GlobalMenu and all the Gnome Panel plugins will all stay buggy and unfinished because everyone has shifted focus.

Funny thing, I have been messing with OpenSUSE in virtualbox and I can't stand KDE, I think Gnome 3 is much faster to use smile.gif
