Mark Shuttleworth announced a few minutes ago, January 24th, on his blog that the next version of the Ubuntu operating system, Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin), will feature a HUD (head-up display) system, replacing the old menus.

"Say hello to the Head-Up Display, or HUD, which will ultimately replace menus in Unity applications." - said Mark Shuttleworth in the blog announcement.

Developed in-house during the last 18 months, the next-generation menu system will definitely revolutionize both the Linux and Windows desktops.

The old menus (yes, the ones that are now designed like in Mac OS) will be replaced by the new HUD system developed by Canonical.

Take a look at the video above to see how the HUD feature works and how it will help us do our daily tasks better.

We now understand why the Unity interface was developed!
