Are Power Users Too Cool for Ubuntu Unity?

Ubuntu 3

darthcamaro (735685) writes "There are alot of us that really don't like Unity. Ubuntu Founder Mark Shuttleworth defended Unity today, arguing that even 'cool' power users should like usability and ease of use. Then again he admitted that some of us are just too *cool* even for Unity.

"There is going to be a crowd that is just too cool to use something that looks really slick and there is nothing we can do for them," Shuttleworth said. "Fortunately in Ubuntu there are tons of options and lots of choice and ways to skin the cat."

Shuttleworth is completely out of touch. People hating Unity has nothing with being too cool to use it. Unity looks nice at first, but it doesn't have good usability, and that is the problem.
