30 Days w/ Ubuntu: Day 14: I'm an Ubuntu Unity Convert

Filed under
Ubuntu

After poking around the Unity interface a bit, I had switched back to the Ubuntu Classic desktop at the urging of some reader comments. But, today I decided to take a close look at Unity, and what unique features and functions it brings to the mix.

As it turns out, there is a lot I love about Unity. Why? Well, I know that some Linux loyalists are tiring of me comparing Ubuntu to Windows (although that is essentially the premise of the 30 Days With Ubuntu Linux series), but the reason I love Unity is that it offers many of the same features and functions I love about Windows 7.

I have already discovered that Ubuntu offers window snapping functionality similar to Windows 7 Aero Snap. Today, I learned that it also has features similar to Aero Peek, Jump Lists, and the Pinned Sites feature of Internet Explorer 9.
