Goodbye Unity

Ubuntu is finally bailing on Unity!

I never understood why Canonical invested so much time, energy, and political capital, on a project that just wasn’t that different from GNOME. They seemed to go out of their way to create something that wasn’t quite as good, but at the same time, wasn’t all that different.

Of course, I’m upset this pivot resulted in people losing their jobs, however Rick Spencer has a nice post reminding Canonical employees there are lots of interesting opportunities waiting for them.
