And me? Who am I? Where am I? What am I doing here? What should I do?

Thoughts on the Ubuntu and Unity

Finally I tried it.

I must start by saying that I did not like Unity in Ubuntu 11.04, but I did not spend much time in it, so I did not have the time to really understand the idea behind it. However I was curious on the project and I could see some reasons for it. It looked weird and buggy anyway, so I just applied a "wait and see" policy...

Now I am on Ubuntu 11.10.
The design and the usability are much improved. It looks nice, it works smoothly. I had no problems, so after some general comments on Ubuntu as an OS, I will focus on the Unity desktop, which is quite a hot topic at the moment, and give my thoughts on it.

My conclusions? Ubuntu is getting better and better, and Unity can become a great unique interface.
