“It is probably the most requested feature ever for the Ubuntu Linux operating system, and Ubuntu Unity developer Marco Trevisan announced yesterday on his Google+ page that Canonical finally decided to merge the hard work done by the Ubuntu Kylin team to bring the Unity 7 Launcher on the bottom edge.”
See It’s Official, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Now Lets Users Move the Unity Launcher to BottomIt’s amazing how some folks think they’re inventing the wheel when they are actually re-inventing it. Take menus/task bars and such. Canonical thought it was revolutionary to put the bar on the left side of the screen to save space on huge or tiny screens. Just now they think it’s progress to allow users to move it to the bottom, again. I was able to move my KDE “panel” around on my first desktop distro, Caldera e-Desktop, in 2000…, so they’re 16 years late. Oh, it’s not click and drag. You have to run a command from the keyboard… Sigh. It’s the 21st century and they are going backwards.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
