Ubuntu was my first Linux distribution. I switched to Linux after Windows XP got its second virus. That was back in 2008. After Ubuntu switched to its Unity desktop I moved over to Linux Mint.
Well, Ubuntu 14.04 is about to be released this month, and I am thinking of using it as my main system. One reason was watching the video by Alan Pope on Ubuntu Unity Overview. I resisted the new desktop because I don’t like change. But a lot of the design ideas made sense. And the new tweaks have helped move me in that direction.
