I'd mod you +1 Funny but I'm not speaking of Unity here, only of the following sentence about the switch from tablet mode to desktop mode :

just introduces window management, and it also introduces things like menus and dialog boxes

It's quite clever, more than the Metro solution, and could be adopted by more desktop environments.

Didn't read TFA, did you ? Well it's /. ... The point is : he's not mixing tablet apps and desktop apps like Windows 8. If you look at the video you'll see that if you use your tablet as a tablet, you see tablet UIs. But if you plug your tablet to a keyboard / mouse, the apps switch to desktop mode. That seems really nice.

The universe is an island, surrounded by whatever it is that surrounds universes.
