Ugh....Unity *Shudder*
Nice for netbooks, I suppose. I still prefer GNOME, but hey, to each his/her own :P
For netbooks it's great, after all a full desktop doesn't really work that well for it.
I still like GNOME/KDE but this would be cool to try out.
I heard Unity will be shipped as the default DE in the next Ubuntu desktop release.
Yeah that's the plan I believe. Not many people are happy with it.

Yep, thats the case. But the classic desktop will still be available through an option in the login screen, so you will always be able to switch back if you don't like Unity.

Hey Deep Though, I'm having issues getting things to actually display when I log in with a unity session, do you have any experience with setting it up at all?

I just installed the entire netbook remix (complete reinstall), so I didn't need to set it up at all.

But according to http://www.webupd8.org/2010/05/ubuntu-1010-will-get-unity-ubuntu-light.html (scroll down to red box), you can install the devver's package of Unity with

Code: (Linux apt-get) [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:canonical-dx-team/une
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install unity

from PPA. (Other bleeding-edge versions are at https://code.edge.launchpad.net/~canonical-dx-team if you want.)

EDIT: Here's what's left of my thumb drive after I set up Ubuntu with over 3 GB persistency:

EDIT2: Dang, I missed 2 MB :P

EDIT3: I think I know why I like Unity so much. It's like the Mac OS Dock :love:

Wow I like that background :D
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Prolly, it's really hard to find 5-monitor wide wallpapers.

Here's the source image.
