    Yes, once you're used to having up-to-date software it's hard to go back to something like Ubuntu, with all it's bugs that were patched months ago upstream.

    I switched from Debian to Ubuntu on my new laptop. So I am comparing it to another free product and one without a company backing it. When Ubuntu can't do better than the free distro they are based on, they are doing something wrong.

    I am using Ubutnu 17.10 with Unity 7. When it stopps being supported, I will need to "upgrade" to 18.04. Is there any way to continue using Unity 7? I don't like Unity 8, because it looks like it was made for phones/tablets (touchscreens, actually).
    Or to have Unity 8, but customised to look more like Unity 7?
    You can install Unity 7 in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, it is in the archives, install 18.04 LTS and then enter:
    sudo apt install ubuntu-unity-desktop Reboot.

    Unity 7 is discontinued. So new features is not likely. Maybe bug fixes.
    Unity 8 is abandoned by Canonical but there is the UBPorts community which picked it up and continues the development of it.

    The new Unity experience is built on top of GNOME as a GNOME Shell Extension. It provides a familiar user interface with a dock to the left.

    There was a icons and theme update in the mix but it was apparently pushed back to 18.10 at the last minute.
