My ThinkPad X220 was last clean-installed with #Ubuntu 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 😂
@popey I honestly detest the 'old' lenovo keyboards... Recall your recent UserError episode, where you mentioned the feel of a fork grinding over your teeth? ( 😛️ ) thinking about describing the feel of those exact laptop keyboards brings that part of your podcast to mind...
Sorry about that, wasn't a nice thing to mention, was it? 😬️
Did you actually like Unity, or were you one of those who rejoiced when Ubuntu changed back to Gnome?
@RasmusLindegaard I loved Unity and still do. It's faster and has better UX than most other desktop environments.
@popey I concur. I was one of those who thought it was an upgrade. And though Mr. Wimpress and co. has done an excellent job turning Gnome 3 into something usable (20.04 really does look good) I am not certain that Unity did not have more potential.
Anyhow, it does look rather aged these days, it's funny how quickly that happens 😛️
