Re: [tlug] Holy smokes, Unity and Gnome 3 suck worse than I ever could have imagined.


Yeah, people use fingers, but other than the fact that it bypasses an
actual mouse device, you're still manipulating a pointer on a flat, 2D
screen. The real interface changes on iPhones and Androids have to do
with limited screen space. An iPad, for example, doesn't do much of
anything different from a mouse.

As for voice command, it's a long, long, long way off from the kind of
natural speech ability to really hit that Star Trek level. Let me know
when I can just turn to my computer and say "Hey, computer, play my
favourite songs in random order."

I hear what you're saying that changes are a'comin', but it's a long
way still before were using something that isn't based on the same
principles as the original Xerox concept.


Thanks for the links!

I hate Unity and Gnome3 enough to leave Ubuntu if that's what it
takes. I think I'd stay within a debian package system, so no Fedora
for me. But if I felt that I could get a decent UI with, say, Arch
Linux or Gentoo or whatever, then that's where I'll go.

But Mint isdefinitely a possibility, as I would get to keep what is
essentially Ubuntu underneath. I just wonder about the long term.
