    April 1st already?

    I've heard nothing but complaints (mostly about speed) from people that have tried Unity. Now I have even more reason to recommend Kubuntu instead.

    Exactly, is it all simply because of touch capabilities?
    I'd like to see a list of user/technical features that are present in Unity and lack in Gnome Shell that contributed to this decision.
    I'm concerned cause to me Ubuntu's own implementation of notifications is actually worse, same about their system tray applet, so I'm afraid their Unity will be also worse than Gnome's Shell in exchange of cool-sounding-features that are in reality not worth it.

    Oh great... that will surely put off a lot of users if it ends being as "good" as the current Unity.

    WOW. That is some news to report. Who is using the Unity? what are the reviews on that thing?

    Phoronix: Ubuntu 11.04 Desktop To Get Rid Of GNOME's Shell

    While GNOME 3.0 is expected to roll out in March and will boast the brand new GNOME Shell interface with the Mutter compositing window manager, this will not appear by default in the Ubuntu desktop. Certainly not in Ubuntu 11.04 and it doesn't look like it will be used at all in the future by default (granted, you'll be able to install the shell from a package repository). It's just been announced that beginning with Ubuntu 11.04, the desktop spin will begin using the Unity shell that Canonical originally developed for netbooks...
