    Elementary OS, here I come... at least I'll give it a spin when the Isis version is closer to being ready.

    Funny to hear him talk about unification when Ubuntu is all about fragmentation nowadays.

    Nothing against Elementary OS, but why would an upcoming release be a reason to switch? I mean, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is running great and if they fuck up 14.10, because Unity8/Mir is still too unstable or whatever, then who cares? Ubuntu 14.04 LTS will still run great in years to come.

    is the point of lts over normal. the .10 are always a pain in ass like 10.10 and 12.10, a lot of new features without stability

    Not a real animal this time? Utopic? That doesn't sound like they're confident in it at all.

    Hmm, so 16.04 that they are aiming all their new things for is going to be what, the Xylophonic Xiphophorus?

    You're right. Ubuntu is pretty much the only linux operating system I've used on a desktop so far, and I'll most likely stick with 14.04 for quite some time.

    But seeing that Ubuntu has now really started going to a direction of their own (that not many are pleased with), focusing on mobile, introducing mir and their own package manager, core apps for pretty much everything etc, I'm not sure if I want to "upgrade" to future versions of it anymore. And so Elementary OS Isis is becoming a more compelling alternative day by day.

    That said, I've yet to try it out. If someone knows a "better" linux desktop/distribution alternative to Ubuntu(Unity), please let me know.

    And I'm sure you have numbers to back up your anecdotal evidence? Or maybe you think "vocal minority on the internet" equals "many people"?

    Ubuntu is going in an exciting direction. Unification is not about being pals to the boring developments of the majority. For those who can read, the unification pedantic Shuttleworth talks about is the holy grail even Microsoft can't seem to achieve: a single codebase for both the OS and apps spanning every electronic information device, from phones to TVs and the Internet of Things. Hardcore users who despise this effort can live happily with their Debian or Fedora or whatever other distro they wish. What they don't need to do is posting again and again how unhappy they are with Canonicals decisions. It's not like Canonical forces anyone to use or implement their ideas.
