    Why Qt? Why not take advantage of the similar work already done, ie the Enlightenment netbook shell?

      Yes, it would.
      But Canonical claims that there is absolutely no accessibility on Linux and they are the heroes to provide it finally which according to them makes the Nux-based Unity necessary: http://kamikazow.wordpress.com/2011/...6/#comment-578 (J. Riddel is a Canonical employee)

      Maybe they realized that Qt is better.

        How long before the 3D version of unity is built on QT too?

        Makes a lot of sense given the development resources that are poured into QT, they are moving forward, and fast!

          Huahuahua, that link would explain that perfectly. Whoever is the manager for Unity has ADHD.

The most ridiculous thing is the panel on the left part of the screen. I couldn't figure out how to move it to another place or better yet make it autohide.
            the autohide (well something better: intelli-hide) is already working in 11.04 alpha. Works very nicely, but of course not for daily use yet

              i think the worst collisions are the names "windows" and "apples"
