After recent announcement about Unity's end, Mark Shuttleworth has now shared his views on how Ubuntu may shape up in 18.04.
We will invest in Ubuntu GNOME with the intent of delivering a fantastic all-GNOME desktop. We're helping the Ubuntu GNOME team, not creating something different or competitive with that effort. While I am passionate about the design ideas in Unity, and hope GNOME may be more open to them now, I think we should respect the GNOME design leadership by delivering GNOME the way GNOME wants it delivered.
Our role in that, as usual, will be to make sure that upgrades, integration, security, performance and the full experience are fantastic.
