am a newbie... just started using Ubuntu about three weeks ago. I was attempting 
to install Windows7 on my laptop but for some reason I cannot. Even with a clean 
install. My friend's got a 9.04 and he told me to wipe my laptop clean by 
installing Ubuntu and clean install Windows7 after... didn't work!

And soooo... I got stuck with with the 9.04! BUT when the Update Manager showed 
an Upgrade to 10.10, i clicked on upgrade and soon after... my laptop won't 
start! Tried slipstreaming Windows... didn't work! Then I made a Pendrive 
installer of Ubuntu10.04 following on-line instructions, installed it on my 
laptop and have been enjoying Ubuntu since then.

I am a convert and have been showing my new OS (with the jiggling windows) to my 
peers. One friend has actually installed Ubuntu using the Pendrive I created. Am 
still discovering a lot of things about Ubuntu hence I joined the Mailing list. 
Now... am a bit nervous about these changes you are talking about here...

Sorry... am not a full time techie (or what some call a geek), I'm an above 
average Windows user and would like to be formally "doctrinized" on Ubuntu... Am 
really starting to like it but am beginning to be wary...

as long as support for the current UI is still available then the new move is 
fine with me. :D but it's weird for a desktop to act/look like the netbook 

Something that's new will always be weird :). A radical approach will  always be 
weird :).
