Ubuntu Unity Still Alive Available at Ubuntu 22.04

Posted on

Ubuntu Unity 22.04 released

Ubuntu 16.04 is the Ubuntu series that still uses the graphical shell unity. Since the 18.04 series, Ubuntu no longer uses Unity but uses Gnome 3 as the default development environment.

I got to know Linux 11 years ago, have tried many distros to get a feel for Linux performance.

Starting from the base Unity, Gnome, Cinnamon, Mate, Xfce, LXDE, Pantheon, KDE, and Cutefish. And I feel, Unity is the most suitable graphical shell for me. That’s very productive, especially for me as a programmer.

However, after upgrading to ubuntu 18.04, I no longer find unity as the base for ubuntu, but have switched to Gnome 3.

I also like Gnome because it’s more flexible in custom appearances. But for productivity, honestly I like Unity.

Fortunately, there are those who continue Unity, but not from Canonical Ltd. rather by the community you can find on here.

The unity version is still the same as the previous version, which is version 7. But, I see that there are new features provided. One of which is in the search menu, can be used as a command for the menu of software when the it is being used.
