The other day I was saying how much I was not impressed by Unity, the desktop Canonical are planning to replace Gnome with. I have switched the small shiny box back to Gnome because Unity was just making getting anything done too fiddly. It also makes keeping track of what is going on more difficult than it should be, and is some ways is just less usable. You can't even set the clock on the panel — I say panel, but it isn't really a panel any more — to display in 24 hour format. If Ubuntu goes off on the Unity road, I think I won't be going with it.
