    Stop making bullshit up. I use openSUSE on different PCs since 10.3, two of them with NVidia GPU (one with Radeon) and never were the NVidia drivers from the official repository causing kernel panics.

    Guys, the performance problems of Unity where due to using Mutter which will no longer be used and they did the first Unity with a small team in just 6 months and it is pretty good for that. Now they have a huge team working on just improving Unity to make it shine really bright. They even hired smspillaz, the well known Compiz developer and will use the Compiz rewrite (0.9 and later) for Unity.

    Hate him if you want, but they know what they're doing as they had to think about Gnome-panel vs. Gnome-shell vs. Unity for a long time now.
    While I have no reason to doubt you, aside from my own experiences with Unity and Gnome-Shell (jhbuilt 2 days ago on desktop), why have I been unable to use Unity for the past several weeks? At the same time, G-S, from the ppa, runs fine (this is on netbook).
    Unity doesn't seem to solve any problems. A dock (AWN, or, perferably, Cairo-Dock, or even Docky) would give you the same side-panel plus more features. The ridiculous accordion effect looks neato but is not as good a solution as fish-eye, plus it will be interesting to see it's use on a touch screen (while G-S would actually work well on a touch screen -- giant freaking icons in overview + activities button (expose)).
    No, I don't think this was well thought out, just as I think Shuttleworth's notification system was not well thought out. Gnome-Shell's notification system is already better than Ubuntu's, IMHO, and it is not complete.
    Ubuntu has really good designers NOW, and their papercuts project was/is fantastic, but left to their own, I fear for the distro.

    For KDE at least use SUSE
    SuSE? For NVIDIA users SuSE is (S)uSEless! I've tried 11.0, 11.1 and 11.2 and always got a giant kernel panic with NVIDIA when I tried to switch to the terminal, or randomly, absent with EVERY OTHER DISTRO. Also, Kubuntu Maverick Meerkat is a lot better than previous Kubuntu incarnations. You have an useful package manager (KPackagekit is, for the first time, really useful, and if you need more, you can install Muon from a PPA), a working Bluetooth stack (not that disaster called KBluetooth) and no mysterious translation bugs (this is a FIRST, congratulations!).

    Kubuntu has surpassed the desktop experience of Fedora KDE, right now. I don't know about SuSE, because the SuSE-specific panics have kept me out from it.

    For those that would actually like to read what the lead Unity dev has to say have a look here.
    http://njpatel.blogspot.com/

    Ubuntu will still be Gnome, but 3 styles.
    Unity(default)
    Gnome 2xx(fallback,still in repos)
    Gnome shell(in repoes)

    There will of course be an option to use GNOME 2.x or gnome-shell from GDM as a session (sort of like how we do GNOME Shell today)

    The regular gnome desktop will still be available, just as it is now on Unity netbook edition. Even Gnome 3

    bloated crap? sure, but wqhat is gnome in that case? A dump? Mass obesity?

    NomadDemon, are you talking about gnome or ubuntu-gnome? You should not confuse one with the other.
