Since the release of 11.10, Ubuntu has used Unity as its default desktop environment. There has been a lot of controversy around choosing Unity over Gnome 3, and many of you have requested my opinion. So here goes!
In this week's episode of OS.ALT I describe the important differences for you, and what the improvements found in the latest version of Unity released with Ubuntu 12.04 mean in comparison with Gnome 3. Hint: Ubuntu 12.04 really floored me, in no small part due to Unity and the HUD.
OS.ALT covers the independent/hacking/geek community, including open source alternatives to operating systems and gaming, Android hacks (rooting, comparison vs. iPhone, preview apps, workarounds & tinkering), Linux for newbs, plus audience questions & answers.
