Ubuntu Network Edition 10.10 with Unity interface
UNE features a new Unity interface, which includes a global menu bar as part of the default interface on the left side of the screen (see image above). The Unity interface includes new app-launching and file-browsing files functions, as well as semantic search. The UI has also been enhanced with multitouch support, which is also available on the desktop version.
As noted in our previous coverage, the 10.10 version of the Ubuntu Desktop Edition is notable for its improved look and feel, with a major emphasis on the “look” part of the equation. The entire Ubuntu interface has been enhanced with new themes, icons, and wallpaper options.
A new default theme has received an update after the version released with the beta received “negative reactions,” according to a Linux Journal write-up by Susan Linton. “It’s a precursor to dynamically morphing wallpaper planned for a release or two down the road,” she adds.
