I will grant that when you get 6 inches of snow in Minnesota, it's not going anywhere until Februrary or March
Or in the case of this year June. The snow pile at the end of the parking ramp here at my work took until June 3rd to finally melt.
Late northern region snow melts was actually part of the problem with the Missouri River flooding, or am I wrong?
Piss off, Shuttleworth
If I was you I'd ask for my money back. Oh that's right, you didn't pay for it. The sense of entitlement and the ungratefulness of Linux users never ceases to amaze me.
Listen, just because it's free doesn't mean we can't voice an opinion. That argument is just as bad as saying "If you have nothing to hide, then surely you won't mind the cops rummaging through your stuff for no reason." There's nothing wrong with saying we don't like it. Unless you're a developer, the only way to improve it is to voice how it can improve.
Shuttleworth is talking shit. Unity is a GUI designed from the START for tablets.
Or maybe it is just a GUI mostly copying OS X. There are very few things in it that are particularly tablet-centric.
Oh God. Really? Can we get into any GUI without claiming it somehow copied something Apple? And did you even use Unity? For one, like it or not, it really is radically different than anything else I've ever used. It is also very tablet-centric with it's crazy large icons and more mobile looking interface (as compared to traditional desktop UI).
PS - I can't stand Unity.
Whether you liked it a lot or didn't, Apple made products that "work". They don't crash, they don't lock up, they don't keep their user puzzled how to use them. They made "computer stuff" usable by common folks.
See? I told you they had a great marketing department.
