I stopped to use Ubuntu because of Unity although it was presented as a more intuitive way to use a computer : it is worth for me. Kubuntu is too big and has a lot of "bloatwares". I would like to still have an easy to use distro. For example, a window list bar offers less cognitive effort. It isn't because it has been proposed since years that a window list is bad.

> I think that the added value of HUD its the road that Xubuntu wants to take, we have already decided that we are not a linux distribution targeted to older or low resources computers, if our system works there then excellent, but it should not be our commanding goal. In that aspect HUD brings a whole new way to use a system, it simplifies processes of searching through menues, it gives the system more accessibility to persons with low vision or blind, it helps to narrow xubuntu to mainbuntu, making things similar and compatible while not loosing the things that make xubuntu a "standard paradigmatic" desktop.
