Being a geek and all that, I try to keep up with the latest developments in Linux land. One new development as of late is that there are two new desktop shells on the block: Gnome Shell and Ubuntu's Unity. Personally, I've fallen in love with the way Gnome Shell works, but Unity seems to rub me completely the wrong way. I had previously switched my Ubuntu install to Gnome 2 (to avoid Unity), but with the 11.10 release, Gnome 2 was removed and Gnome 3 (with Shell) was available in the repositories, so I decided to upgrade.
