It's awesome, using it now. Haven't booted Windows in three days now.

Likewise. The GUI is sketchy though...

Also, I haven't booted Windows in 3 days because I can't :P

Sketchy how? It's similar to 10.10 appearance wise, it just has a new desktop environment and a sidebar.
btw that sidebar is epic!

Well, i tried to enable the desktop cube in Compiz and it just broke the entire GUI. Took me an hour to fix that particular goof. Also, whenever I change any video settings the GUI (particularly the toolbar) gets messed up.
Also, the sidebar just feels a little unresponsive and sluggish to me. And I'm not entirely sure what the point of it is to be quite honest.

Yes, I had the same issue with CompizConfig, it was made for Gnome, not Unity.
You can revert back to Gnome by logging out and then choosing your desktop session when you log in again. Choose Ubuntu Classic.

The point of the sidebar was to minimize vertical space usage for netbooks, tablets, and monitors I think.

I know, that's what I had to do to fix it....

Yes, but the top left button has much of the same content. A lot of it seems redundant.

Well I like the fact that the maximized window puts all the window controls in the top bar, it really makes good use of otherwise empty space, which is a plus when browsing. The page is almost full screen.

Eh. I don't really see why they couldn't do that and still have the icons up there.

Yeah, they could've do that with the same fading thing like with the menus. I miss my eyeballs
And why did they take the weather thing out of the calendar? That was a feature I liked in 10.10.

I hope the icons can be made smaller... I have to back up my laptop before I install, and that's likely to take a while.

The icons in the sidebar? AFAIK it's not possible.

Yeah. It looks like pointless styling to me =/

I'm sure it's possible some way. I really wish I could move it to my right monitor though, would make things a /lot/ nicer for me.

Ubuntu 11.04, upgraded from 10.10 on my notebook computer. So far, works flawlessly. I don't care for Unity, so I boot using Ubuntu Classic (Gnome).

What other changes have been made, outside of Unity? I know that FF4 is on there, and they have installed Libre Office which is apparently an offshoot of Open Office.org, but what else would compel an upgrade?

They changed the music player to Banshee and there are numerous little enhancements everywhere. The software center doesn't have that lag anymore after you click Install on something.

Hrm. I'm unfamiliar with Banshee. I've been experimenting with Exaile lately because the interface works a bit better. Either way, then, I will have to rate my music all over again.

It's not much different than the music player in Ubuntu 10.10, I think you'll get used to it rather quickly.

Hm. I'm on 10.04. Looks like it Banshee will import the ratings from Rhythmbox, though it takes issue with tracks that are missing the encoding type suffix (ex. .mp3) and apparently it's biased against .38 Special for some reason.

Still haven't gotten around to backing this laptop up, yet. Definitely going to use the hard-LAN for that, though.
