Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal review - A great surprise

People will either love it or hate the new Ubuntu, there's no middle ground. Unity represents the pinnacle of why Linux has not yet made it big in the desktop market and why it may yet become a revolution. It is also the counterpoint to Gnome 3, which too has seen an extremely controversial development against the backlash of grudge and resistance from veteran users.

At stake is the final hope of seeing Linux reach the critical mass. It may take another six iterations until this actually happens, but if Unity does not manage to sway the masses, then nothing else will. OK, maybe Gnome 3 might do it. But here and now, it is Ubuntu 11.04, codename Natty Narwhal, equipped with Unity, that interests us. Is this something that masses would want and could use? Is this the final nail in the proverbial coffin of Linux desktop evangelization? Is this the sum of all good we have all been waiting for? Enough poetic drama, let's test Natty.
