Thanks for the readings - as someone that recently moved from 10+ years on
Ubuntu, I quite liked Unity. I'm finding Gnome a little brain dead in some
obvious-to-me-why-not-everyone-else areas.

For me, the saddest thing about this announcement is that I *still* think
Amarok is the best media player available, even if I've not used it for a
while. Installing the entire KDE base for one program is just too heavy. It
really is streets ahead of the other media players though.
