My ThinkPad X220 was last clean-installed with 14.04 in 2015 and has since been upgraded through many releases. Just upgraded it to 20.04, and Unity is still wonderful. 😍 Just needs s Yaru theme to finish it off πŸ˜‚

@popey I thought Ubuntu dropped unity, and was back to gnome with a unity theme?

@douginamug Yes. That's right. Ubuntu dropped the Unity DE back in 18.04 LTS release. However, @popey 'upgraded' his pre-existing Ubuntu 14.04 installation on the ThinkPad to Ubuntu 20.04. It wasn't a 'clean install'. Hence, he still has the Unity DE.


@sudo @douginamug Uh. No. That's not entirely accurate. You can clean install 20.04 and install Unity on top. It's still in the repo, and never went away. It's just not the default and not actively developed.

@popey @douginamug Oops! My mistake. Thanks for pointing it out, though. πŸ˜„ πŸ‘
