Here is a new and very interesting user interface that Ubuntu have been testing, it uses a sort of Head up Display (HUD) the idea being that this will eventually take over from the menu features that we are used to. The idea is going to take a bit of getting used to, but this really does look promising for the future and not just for Ubuntu users either.
According to Mark Shuttleworth, founder of the Ubuntu Project, he said;
“The desktop remains central to our everyday work and play, despite all the excitement around tablets, TV’s and phones. So it’s exciting for us to innovate in the desktop too, especially when we find ways to enhance the experience of both heavy “power” users and casual users at the same time. The desktop will be with us for a long time, and for those of us who spend hours every day using a wide diversity of applications, here is some very good news: 12.04 LTS will include the first step in a major new approach to application interfaces.”
