I'm still updating the Natty 11.04 Virtual machine as I've actually been using it to produce material for the magazine. Unity still works, but only as this bastardised hybrid with Gnome desktop running alongside it; still broken, with random crashes on startup. Ok, the crashed applets all re-load, but now by Gnome session seems unable to retain all the elements of a theme. Any theme.
Work in progress... Roll on Feb 3rd. RC
