I agree that Unity will help Canonical's OS differentiate itself from
other Linux-based OSes, but it won't be 11.04 that does it. I suppose
give them another two releases with Unity, until the next LTS, to see
how Ubuntu will no longer be yet another Linux-based OS. Sort of how
OS-X is not another *BSD.
