Compare how a linux desktop was 10 years ago and how it is today. Like it or not, Ubuntu has driven most of the chages/controversies. I like to use it. Has it's issues, but overal, I realy enjoy it.Â I have much more complains from Gnome, for dumbing down too much, than from the Unity interface.Â I think most Slashdot users are too conservative to accept some changes and are allways complaining and acepting WORSE alternatives because they look "like it used to be". This is the problem with Slashdot. No forward thinking anymore.
