    ..

    That's because I use both opensuse and Fedora and I love OBS, which is open build service, not opensuse build service.
    And we do Fedora first since chenxiaolong is fedora only user. If somebody want to help with the suse specs we'll have the port in few days for suse.

      A level headed Unity discussion?
      I came to watch the bun fight, where are all the Unity haters??
      Maybe all the rage exploded their heads.

        I only saw it once so far, on an Ubuntu Live CD, it took me ~5min to figure out how to open a terminal

          sudo yum install unity-experience
          sudo pacman -S unity-experience

          The problem with the Arch packages is that they take forever to build. But with the introduction of the Arch backend in the new development versions of OBS, we should be able to provide binary packages for Arch Linux, Fedora, and openSUSE at the same time
          Ah, i see. I had thought global menus just happened to disabled - as i've seen Ubuntu users with global menu disabled / a guide on some ubuntu site on how to disable it.

          Well, as far as packaging Unity - it sounds like using OBS is going to make life much easier for not only you guys (the packagers), but it will actually make it much easier for the user. Awesome stuff.

          I wonder what Canonical thinks of Unity no longer really being necessarily an 'ubuntu experience'?

              Ubuntu "If you think gnome-shell is bad, just wait until you see this" Unity.
              Maybe it would be a better idea just to use gnome-shell extensions to make a usable desktop?

              Here's my list:

              Remove Accessibility
              Quit Button
              NetSpeed
              Remove Panel App Menu
              Frippery Shut Down Menu
              LookingGlass Button
              SettingsCenter
              Frippery Panel Favorites
              Frippery Bottom Panel + patch below
              Frippery Applications Menu
              CPU Temperature Indicator

              This patch I wrote makes bottom panel work on multiple-monitor desktops.

                Hehe, thanks. At one point I got so used to the shortcuts in Awesome, that I keep using them in any WM.
                That would be Mod+Enter for me in Gnome3

                      Canonical really does want to replace Microsoft.

                        Hey, I like unity. I think it's good that even more people get to use unity.
                        I also like unity more than I like gnome3.

                          I like Gnome 3 more than I like Unity or KDE. XFCE is pretty cool though and is my 2nd favorite.

                          Woo-hoo, personal tastes! Because we forget linux is about choices.

                            I tried installing unity with 'yum install unity' this didn't work. I can't select it in gdm. Anyone knows how to install it?

                                You will need to run "yum update". Note: This will replace some system packages. That should pull in gnome-session-ubuntu, which contains the Ubuntu session.
