We are the Ubuntu Unity Development Team.
We will be here answering questions about Unity. If you ever wanted to know who does what, why we made certain technical decisions, or just what we had for breakfast, now is your chance! Ask away! We’ll be around for the next 5 to 6 hours but will try to answer what we can. Thanks for participating!
Note: We are the programmers for Unity, and make very little in the way of design decisions. We will try to answer whatever questions we can about Unity and its design, but there will be some questions we just won’t have answers for.
The conversation can be summarised as:
There seems to be no love lost between the programming team and the design team. From the AMA, a clear picture of the Unity design team has emerged
While some would argue that taking such risks is essential for progress to happen, it is disconcerting to see that the most detailed explanation about the inflexibility of Unity given by team Ubuntu has been:
“Because we can”
