Since its release, Ubuntu Unity has been plagued with bad reviews, bad usability and huge bugs. I used to use GNOME 2 and since Canonical switch to GNOME 3/Unity I’ve been forced to switch to KDE. Unity and GNOME 3 are so badly implemented (mostly because they are ‘work in progress’) they reduce my productivity.
The most recent from Canonical is this ‘Quicksilver’ interface to menus. Interesting, but the problem is that Canonical seems to be focusing in creating interfaces for hardware vendors to put on their computers, or interfaces for tablets/mobile phones, instead of focusing on desktop users.
Well, I’ve switched to KDE. After loosing an afternoon configuring the environment, now everything seems to be working OK.
