The Weak Link in Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop
I’ve tried to love Unity. I keep trying every time I install Ubuntu since Unity was introduced as the GUI of choice. I’ve read a lot about UI design over the years, (Doug Engelbart to John Sculley’s Personal Digital Assistant) so I don’t think I’m a curmudeon about it. But I just can’t be productive on a daily basis with Unity as it functions today. Searching for alternatives, clearly I know I’m not alone. Best of luck Mark, getting Unity working, but in the meantime I have to keep going back to a productive environment.
