Recently company behind Ubuntu announced it will discontinue developing Unity, Ubuntu’s default desktop environment and for the next LTS Gnome will take its place. The news made me sad because of one feature I really like about Unity which Gnome doesn’t have. And this is global menus where app bar and it’s menu are mixed in desktop bar. Which saves a ton of space. It also provides less distraction. I hope Ubuntu team will really work on this issue and make Gnome compelling to use. Because right now although I’m from time to time using gnome desktop for getting used and prepared to that switch, I’m always taken aback how quickly I switch back to Unity. With Gnome I have a “such a waste of space” feeling all the time.
