I like that Ubuntu tries to choose one tool for a task instead of trying
to include them all.  I think this helps keep the distribution lean and
focuses people on improving the shortcomings of the chosen tool.  I hope
Ubuntu doesn't lose focus.  You can't please everyone, and resources are
limited.  I'd rather have the development team devote as much time as
possible to the standard configuration instead of trying to bug fix
every possible desktop environment.
