not that people were not telling them for years that they are wasting time........and resources. Next, ditch Mir and snaps and we are back to 10.04. :rolleyes:

Snaps stay, Mir is ditched.

Good call IMO. And Ubuntu Phone was at least in my view dead-end with the "Apple-like" restrictions and weirdness they bolted on top of normal Linux ecosystem.

I will miss Unity, as I'm I guess one of the rare breeds who found it a good UI. I won't miss Ubuntu Touch, except as far as it was committed to open-source.

Me too. Indeed, there likely are many who came to appreciate the Unity desktop as different yet very productive. Critics - and they are entitled to be so - tend to have the loudest voices.

Source?

For some work, I've switched from Fedora to macOS, what a nightmare!! After few weeks, I find Gnome way more efficient than macOS.

I'm sure they'll enable a couple of extensions by default or even write some new ones to replicate the way Unity worked.
