Ubuntu wants to revolutionize the UI

It would seem that Ubuntu is in a race with Microsoft and Apple to make a massive change to the way we use desktop.  With the HUD and Unity they are trying to moving things in a new way and change the way we all work.  While I am still on the fence on Unity the HUD is something I hope Apple and Microsoft embrace and extend.  This is a nice article from the man himself, Mark Shuttleworth, about his plans for the future of User Interfaces.

Microsoft bought Netscape from AOL....

Ok not really but they did buy all of the Netscape patents along with others in a $1 Billion purchase of 800 patents.  AOL really shouldn't be hurt but this with their curent strategy of being a content company.  What we ant to know is what MS plans to do with them.  AOL wasn't interested in suing the likes of Mozilla and Google for their Mail and Browser Tech.  MS on the other hand is well versed in doing these things and has already proven they will withthe Android Hardware makers.
