Ubuntu Natty 11.04 Alpha-3:
Unity is working!
After all the complaints through Alpha 1 and 2, the update on Friday night provided the best result so far: Unity is working! Canonical's go-it-alone user interface now works complete with dock auto-hide, application spaces panel and search panel. No strobing, no crashing, no doubling-up with Gnome desktop.
This is in the virtual machine. I haven't updated yet on the Pentium-4 test box.
The Unity top-bar won't hold onto a theme. It soon defaults to plain grey after start-up. Oh well... RC
