Leave it to Beaver: Unity is long gone and you're on your GNOME


Re: On the face of it

@I ain't Spartacus - "It's funny as a non-Penguiny person. I've not read as much about Linux of late, so was amused to see a review talking about people being sad to see the back of Unity."

The sort of person who is motivated enough to write a comment on an IT oriented web forum is generally not the typical user. There are loads of Unity users out there who are just using their PCs to get work done. Fans of the less commonly used desktops or distros seem to feel they need to slag off the major ones rather than promote what is actually good about their own. KDE versus Gnome flame wars for example go back to near the beginning of modern Linux desktop distros.

I ain't Spartacus said: "So when do I expect the article mourning the loss of systemd?"

Based on how these things tend to go, I expect we'll see that in about 10 years.
