Unity Desktop Available for Fedora

Software

If the loudest voices in the open-source community were to be believed you’d get the impression that Ubuntu’s Unity desktop is universally loathed.

But in reality it isn’t. Ubuntu’s ever-increasing user-base, OEM deals with Dell, ASUS and Lenovo, and user-testing proves this.

But if there is one valid criticism to be levelled at Unity it’s that it’s Ubuntu-only. This isn’t technically true as the code for Unity (and its components) is freely available for anyone to adapt, port, develop-upon for other Linux distros.

And in the case of Fedora, a team of wily developers have done just that.
