Ubuntu 11.10 - Take 2

Filed under
Linux

Back in October i wrote what was described as a scathing post about the lack of innovation coming out of Canonical.

The complete lack of innovation part i feel stands. However I have had a chance to play with the Unity Interface and I'm getting accustomed to it.

It seems the move toward a more OSX looking system is very obvious especially when the background is changed and the borders are changed to a lighter colour.

I was a Konqueror fanboy before I was KDE fanboy. Lately, Konqueror hasn't even been part of the default Desktop in Kubuntu.

In KDE3, Konqueror was the most comprehensive desktop application ever, a web browser as well as a file manager, but it was even more than that.

Aside from the kernel, there is really no major change, as far as I could tell, from the last stable release, which is Ubuntu 11.04.

Running most of the world’s most powerful supercomputers? Been there, done that.
