Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 is what vanilla Ubuntu Should Be

The Network World portal has published a review of recently released Ubuntu GNOME 15.10. This review observes that, Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 is the most impressive Ubuntu distribution after introducing Unity Shell in vanilla distribution.

And, you know what? It is really solid. I'd go so far as to say it is the most excellent release of Ubuntu since they made the switch to the Unity desktop environment many years back.

But… that's a bit of a problem. Since Ubuntu is so laser-sight focused on their in-house developed Unity environment, other environments simply don't work as well. I experienced multiple problems trying to run GNOME on vanilla Ubuntu 15.10 – and had similar issues with KDE Plasma.

This, right there, stops me from recommending Ubuntu to anyone who isn't madly in love with Unity. Which I am absolutely not.
