"Ubuntu's new Unity Linux desktop interface is the change that everyone is talking about, but it was far from the only change that Canonical and Ubuntu's developers are making to Ubuntu's desktop. In fact, even without the change from straight GNOME to Unity, the developers are planning on major changes to the Ubuntu desktop.

"We knew some of these changes was coming. Mark Shuttleworth, Ubuntu's founder, had already announced that Ubuntu would be moving from OpenOffice to LibreOffice for its default office suite. At this point, LibreOffice is 99.9% identical to OpenOffice. By the time Ubuntu 11.04 is released in April, LibreOffice is expected to have improved performance and increased interoperability with Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010 formats."
