A look at what Unity might possibly prepare for us in Ubuntu 12.10

Reading my feeds yesterday, I came across this video, which shows us what possibly Canonical has in store for us with Unity on Ubuntu 12.10.

These guys are really putting all the meat on the grill with Unity. Personally, I really love the idea. What do you think ;)?

    Hi. I think the ideas that the video exposes are quite interesting and it is true that the Ubuntu guys like to plan for the future (one or two versions seen with respect to the one they work) but what is shown here is a mockup, for what little officiality has.

    We will have to wait for the developers to really get to work for that version and show some of their progress.

    This is how it must have been from the beginning! Wow, it looks pretty good, but as I see it it is a concept of an Ubuntu user and not someone from Canonical, so while the company does not find out about it, it will remain only as an idea.

    Well, as Hokasito says, it's just an unofficial mockup. But it would do the Unity and Gnome-shell developers well to recover some of those ideas, as they would certainly improve their respective dash a lot.

    If unity were currently like this, I would go back to normal ubuntu, it looks extremely polished and functional.

    Queeee horrible… .. a hodgepodge concentrated on a third of the screen, increasingly full of things, each time more clicks away, each time with the need for more and more additions for the different applications to integrate, a smartphone in the computer screen…. puuuffff.

    Gnome… .. save us for the love of God.

      If you look at it well, you will realize that the organization justifies the number of possibilities. I am not comfortable with all-in-one style menus (kde or win type), but it seems to me that the mockup recovers the accessibility of the three classic gnome menus with an addition of a gnome-do launcher. When I open the gnome-shell dash, I miss the gnome panel menu (and the same when I have tried Unity). But in this case it incorporates the access of the gnome panel menu to that type of dash, which seems right to me.

    Personally, I really love the idea. What do you think 😉?

    I give you permission to access this information in my head

      Great, upstairs ... let's look for an electric lock and we're going to open the Courage's head, to see what's inside haha ​​... he just gave us permission 😀

        Well, I have a manual from the RAE because "electric locks" do not exist.

        If we entered yours, we would know that you like a certain person, reggaeton, why the girlfriends leave you, etc.

          Correction: "Why" is not said, but "why".

          There is a difference in "why?", "Because" and "why".


          -Why do girlfriends leave you?
          -They leave me because I make grammatical or spelling mistakes.
          -Well, if that explains the reason for their rejections, then you should take a writing course.

            Yeah true

          2.    pepper said

            Well, the truth is that nobody cares about the spelling or the expression
            hahahajjajaj those who correct these nonsense are laughable hahahahahaha
            I will give you a fact, most of the geniuses in history had bad spelling, writing and expression but they still revolutionized the world

          3.    Courage said

            Well, it bothers me a lot that (HOYGAN) is spelled wrong, it reduces people's credibility.

            I do care about spelling and writing, plus quite a bit

    That would be great because it is precisely about having the freedom to choose, but not about them choosing for us.

  8.   José Miguel said

    Well, to be honest, the idea is original, but I don't like it.

    I tried Unity 5 in Ubuntu 12.04 beta and I really liked some things that add but… ..
    …. it is nothing like this.

    Hi everyone, I'm either going crazy or I'm the only person who doesn't want to see Unity even by the hair. I switched to Ubuntu 11.10 and the first thing I did was get rid of Unity, it's the only thing I don't like about Ubuntu. I have Cairo installed and it works great for me, it is much faster than Unity and more stable. I am a network administrator and in my work we use Solaris but at home I use Ubuntu, previously I used Red Hat which is more stable than Ubuntu but as I like to test, now I have been testing Ubuntu for a while and the truth is that it is fine but I keep saying it , is that it has plenty of Unity. Cheers

      No ... I'm sorry to tell you that ... I don't want to see it either HAHAHA !!
      I have tried Unity 2 or 3 times, and the more I used it the more I realized that it is completely absurd, it is not productive but quite the opposite ... ¬_¬

      Welcome to the site 😀

    I'm already looking forward to the release of the new ubuntu 12.10 distribution to prove what it really brings us again.
