"The Mozilla Foundation is reportedly working with Unity Technologies in order to bring an "HTML5 export option" to Unity3D's next major release. Unity3D 5.0 is to be released later this year.

This announcement comes out as a bit of a surprise given that Mozilla's philosophy revolves around free, open and normalized web technologies. Working along with a closed source software vendor really sounds like a weird decision from Mozilla."

    For a moment I thought it is about the abomination of (Ubuntu's) Unity desktop.
    Turns out is about WebGL (3D in browser, Canvas3D implementation) without special plugins.

    Bah. People really overestimate how bad the unity desktop is. Plenty of people get work done in ubuntu. I mean, I'm rocking Awesome WM on my Arch install, but I'd still use unity to get work done. Its focus on the keyboard as integral to your workflow is something I appreciate. Having to go through a mobile-like menu to access your programs is iffy, but I've never ever done that in years of using ubuntu. I access all programs either from the sidebar or from searching for them with the first few letters of the program name. Takes me about 5 keystrokes. It's a very efficient process.

      Curenntly, it's slow, crashy, and doesn't handle multiple monitors nicely. You can get the same efficiency from Gnome shell or KDE without the slow and crashy. No, it's not that bad but it really doesn't offer any big benefits over either of the other two big desktops, while it's a little too tied to a group that seems a little too comfortable handing user searches over to Amazon by default.

      Yo may call me a twisted mind, but I'm dependent on Eclipse. Last time I tried (about 1.5 years ago), there were huge troubles with the scrollbars and Eclipse's stability in general. Switched to LXDE and never looked back.
