LXer: Ubuntu's HUD Explained: Why It's A Great Idea

Published at LXer:

Let's have a look at Unity Heads-Up Display (HUD). By now, I'm sure most readers will have seen the screenshot of HUD and the old Machintosh, and some may have read or heard the expression WIMP for the first time. And you've most likely read at least one article under headings such as Ubuntu replaces menus with HUD. Of course, this is only the media being paid-per-click. It isn't true. In fact, it is the opposite of the truth. In all the official statements, it has been made explicit that the HUD is an addition to the menus and not a replacement. The news media, of course, will never let facts get in the way.
