Like we talked about last night at the Linux SIG, Ubuntu will need to provide a 2D version for systems that cannot handle 3D out of the box (requires proprietary nVidia drivers for instance). According to a ZDNet post, they are including a 2D version of Unity to be included with Natty (11.04). :yippee I guess they realized they may alienate a large portion of their user base if they force the 3D issue (such as myself), and they honestly cannot afford that. Enough is going on in the industry that now is not a time to abuse your users and thankfully they are indicating they are listening. So now I am back to looking forward to 11.04 for my laptop!
