So 11.04 will drop in a few weeks. With it will be the desktop version of Unity, the little bar on the left of the screen that will control your apps. Those of you using docks (like Docky) will make an easy transition to Unity. I used it on an Alpha release, and liked that, so the new version should work fine.
We did hear word this week that Ubuntu 11.04 will end the Ubuntu Netbook Remix. UNR, basically, is Unity on a netbook. So I guess Canonical will not end UNR, but simply fold it into Ubuntu. Makes sense too, to try and reduce confusion for which version to use. When you already see Edubuntu (which was sort of folded into Ubuntu), Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and others, you want to reduce confusion. Since Unity will support netbooks, desktops, and tablets, it makes a lot of sense to move all instances to 11.04. I will be excited to see the finished product, as I really like the Alpha I ran. I can only assume the finished product will work even smoother.
