    Phoronix: Ubuntu Studio Doesn't Like Unity Or GNOME Shell

    Ubuntu Studio, an official Ubuntu Linux derivative designed for an optimal multi-media production experience, will not be following its "bigger brother" in using Canonical's Unity Desktop. But the Ubuntu Studio developers don't like the GNOME Shell as part of the GNOME 3.0 experience either, so they have drawn up a new set of plans...

    The article seems like an unfair summary of the pulseaudio thread. Please read from here on.

      Congratulation!

      With enough angry users we could bring back sanity to Linux.
      I persinally couldn't stand the insane, 'remove settings' gnome/ubuntu approach anymore.
      Few days ago I switched to kubuntu.
      It wasn't easy for first few days, but now only something really amazing in ubuntu could bring me back.

      Looking at that the other way, why am I mad at ubuntu?
      The unity might finally make users ditch it and get rid of insane settings removal agenda that gnome developers push down our throats.
      So thanks ubuntu, I won't miss you.

      (Yes I know that ubuntu isn't just gnome, its the whole distro)

        Unity is horrible to use, after upgrading to 11.04 I quickly switched my default UI to Ubuntu classic.

        I don't understand change for change sake, the UI in GNOME 2.0 isn't that bad, I haven't tried GNOME 3.0 yet, I hope its not worse too.

          I don't ether

          The point is that classic interface is going to be crippled and removed this way or another.
          For example in 11.11, ubuntu switches to gnome3.
          Now the classic gnome-panel I think was ported to GTK3, but it does miss some feature, and it is more g-shell like.

          And I don't like to use interface that is in this state.
          So I use kubuntu now, and enjoy best of both worlds (I kept using many GTK apps, they look just fine in KDE).

            It is worse, because gnome3 g-shell doesn't work with compiz and instead replaces it.
            That gives both disadvantages (stability) of running 3D apps, and no advantages of beautiful and usable compiz interface.

            And before you say that 'beautiful' is 'eye candy', I'll tell you. that 'eye candy' sells.
            Until ubuntu devs grok that, no users will switch to it.

            Look how much money vendors put to make their devices look nice and pretty.

              10.04 is supported on the Desktop until 2013. I'm running FF4 form a PPA. If you don't like Unity it's easier to stay on 10.04, IMHO.

                You have just answered yourself.
                I don't like staying on outdated software.
                use PPAs, etc, etc,...

                  If you prefer Gnome2 then I think there is some irony in that statement.
