And his response was nearly as out of touch as his initial statement. Well done.

After "distro-hopping" for a little while, I have finally settled on Ubuntu Gnome.  I'm currently running 14.04 Beta 2...and so far it is very solid! I've had no issues.  For me, this distro seems to be the best of several well done and kudos to the team!

Chromium 33 in Ubuntu Trusty feels a bit snappier than 32 did.  Maybe enough to make me give it a go as my regular browser for a while.  We'll see. :/

I just replaced Windows 8 on my wife's laptop with Ubuntu. She's fairly resistant to change, though, so we'll see how this goes.

So I'm going to give Unity the old college try for a little while.  I have been using Kubuntu, and I am still very much a KDE person...but there are a number of things I really like about Unity.  Overall I'm impressed with how well the DE has come along recently.

I find it comfortable now. I used to use KDE. Still for screenshots, text editing and image editing, I use kde apps as they're better than their gnome counterparts. But overall unity seems cool and simple. It has some issues though but in general good.

I've been testing out the latest builds of Ubuntu 14.04 for the past couple weeks.  I have used Kubuntu for quite a while, so I've been very used to KDE.  Recently I decided to give "vanilla" Ubuntu a try for a change of scenery, and I'm very impressed.  My machine is a +System76 Gazelle Professional  with 16 GB RAM.

The dash seems MUCH snappier in Trusty than it did when I had tested Saucy.  There is no lag, and my searches (I have disabled online search) appear nearly instantly.  I'm getting used to this combination of shortcuts, and it actually feels very productive. 

Dolphin and Kate have been the hardest applications to switch from.  I'm learning to live with Nautilus (for the moment) but Dolphin's embedded terminal and its method of handling 'copy/move to' have been superior to similar capabilities in Nautilus.  To me, Kate seemed much more complete than gEdit, and again, the embedded terminal seemed far superior in Kate.  I do find Geany to be a suitable stand-in though.  I'll play around more and figure it out. 

All in all, I'd say 14.04 is shaping up to be a very solid release, and I'm looking forward to the final.  I don't know if I'll stick with Unity in the long-term, but it's certainly come a long way in the past couple years! Good job to everyone working on this release!

P.S. I've had this image for a long time and I don't remember where I got it.  Google should find it though! ;)

or you can always install nautilus-open-terminal extension

Kubuntu & KDE SC  - 
I don't normally do this, but I upgraded to the pre-release Kubuntu 14.04 LTS yesterday.  I've got to say, it's pretty sweet! Everything is running like butter and once I got all my repositories cleaned up and straightened, the system seems to be running well!

OK... I'm not a Unity guy, but I was just toying around with 14.04 on a USB drive, and I was very impressed with the speed of Unity. I imagine it would be much faster on the actual SSD. Good work to the team.

Unity has always been fast, yet it has some difficulties for which I don't use it.
