Ubuntu to Drop Unity in 18.04 in Favour of GNOME

4 posts in this topic

As many of you already know, Ubuntu will not ship with Unity 7 or 8 in 18.04 (Scheduled for 2018).  Unity and Mir will not be developed any more by Canonical (The company that makes Ubuntu). Unity 8 however has been forked and people are attempting to port it to Wayland.

I never liked Unity tbh

Same. Whenever i try to use it it always causes problems. On my old machine unity froze and i had to go into the terminal (ctrl alt f1) and reset unity manually.
