Mark Shuttleworth, father of the Ubuntu operating system, announced yesterday evening, October 31st, at the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Orlando, USA that Unity is here to stay and everyone should use it.

Ubuntu Developer Summit for Precise Pangolin, the upcoming version of the popular Ubuntu operating system is taking place these days in Orlando, Florida, USA.

Mark Shuttleworth delivered yesterday morning his usual keynote where he talked about the future of Ubuntu. He thinks that power users don't hate the new interface of the Ubuntu operating system.

"There is a bit of a myth, I think, that power users don't like/aren't interested in usability and ease-of-use. And I think that's absolutely nonsense. I think power users, developers, engineers, system administrators love ease-of-use and love simplicity and love having things just work, so they can concentrate on the pieces that they need to get done." - said Mark Shuttleworth.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, dubbed Precise Pangolin is scheduled for release on April 26th, 2012 and the Ubuntu development team will focus their efforts on making Unity better, offering a much pleasant desktop experience for every user.
