Only women, Girly-Men and children use KDE anyways. (You can tell: It's
got "plaster hello kitty on me" written all over it) :D All joking aside
though.  If they really don't give us to option to drop Unity quite
easily, I foresee Xbuntu picking up in popularity real quick.  I'm
already planning it all out because I can just feel the fail coming.
There are just too many draw backs, somebody outlined a lot of the
complaints I had about it already, including the fact that it also lacks
the ability to move the sidebar (which I would prefer on the right since
it's more ergonomic for me there) and it really pisses me off that it
crashes every damn time you close Firefox.
