was an avid user of Ubuntu since they ship free CDs (2005..?). but the Ubuntu Unity/GNOME3 user interface is... Nice'n'New... but... it is not possible for me to cope with a constantly used desktop that has been changed so severely in a sudden... so bloody sudden and stupid that.. it is like using the mouse with the opposite hand. And i didn't let the 11.10 to touch my hard disk... coz it is just so hard... stupid fancy touch screen crap. We are not using computers for the "touch things". We need the manual gear shift... tie up to it... yeah.

Sir, what is your opinion about the change..?
