    Looks nice I just looked at there website, but sadly I think I'll have to stick to Windows (less driver issues) and everything I do always works perfect in Windows compaired to any other OS

    I'll have to install gnome3 on my ubuntu I don't like fedora at all, Debian based distros are best!

    Ok, I'll write here what I'm doing:


    Full guide here: http://digitizor.com/2011/04/07/inst...esktop-ubuntu/
    NOTE: This is for ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
    sudo apt-get install gnome3-session
    And it will change this:

    To this:
    (not installed yet)

    I used to quite like Gnome, it just looks so confused now by taking stuff from Windows / OSX and making a very big mess of it all.

    Kubuntu is just ubuntu with KDE desktop environment, ubuntu has Gnome (and 11.04 has Unity). You can install gnome3 with my instructions in kubuntu.

    Ok, I'll write here what I'm doing:


    Full guide here: Install Gnome 3 Desktop in Ubuntu 10.10, 11.04 via PPA
    NOTE: This is for ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo apt-get install gnome-shell
    sudo apt-get install gnome3-session

    this actually works,it doesnt mess with your current configuration and all you do is change the session at the login screen

    see attached image for better viewing and it kinda looks like a iphone tabs(circle with X) when you click on activities
