Ubuntu drops Unity

Postby viking60 » 09 Jun 2017, 20:41

Ubuntu will no longer develop the Unity Desktop :jackpot The new default will be Gnome (the second worst desktop).
Unity is still default with the current download but will be replaced in the next edition.
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Centos on the server - Arch on the laptop.

No They just finally listened to me and dropped the crap :mrgreen:
The Mobile phone strategy with the same OS everywhere is " out" these days.

Gnome is still a mobile phone OS so they might just jump there anyway.

I see... never used Ubuntu so never exeperienced Unity. For some odd reason, my gutt feeling tells me not to trust Cannonical.

I know not to trust them. Steve and his money and all.
Took them this long to drop Unity? Wow.
I'd rather be a free person who fears terrorists, than be a "safe" person who fears the government.
