    I really liked the new UI. Finally a decent change for the better after many releases that were not really bringing anything new UI-wise.

    RIP Unity.

      Then you'll get bored with Gnome (and any other DE), too. Because radical changes are not what a DE is about. They happen from time to time, but they are mostly regarded as a necessary evil, not as welcome changes.

        Gnome is close-ish to their 4.0 branch becoming the new development area. Here comes a redesign! Christ give me strength, here we go again.

            Technically and logically gnome 3 is shit compared to Xfce but the flies like shit too. Gnome 3 is buggy, slow, uses computer resources, can not configure freely, no user desktop launchers, ui design for dummies, poor mouse support etc. At the end of the day more advanced gnome 3 users tweak their desktop to look and feel like Xfce.

                  Actually bash autocompletion was the nicest thing I saw in ubuntu. Because before when you typed sudo, there would be no autocompletion at all on the parameters that came after.

                    I am a Manjaro user (and I will stay with it), but I was really impressed how Ubuntu automatically found and configured my printer on the network which I have connected throught usb to an Ubuntu Server machine and shared through cups (it's an old printer and doesn't have wireless or ethernet capabilities on its own). I didn't even need to add it through the settings, it just automatically finds it when it's connected to my local network!! I don't know if that's a Gnome thing or an Ubuntu specific thing, but good job anyway!
