Ho-hum. That seems to be the response from desktop users and reviewers of Ubuntu's latest and greatest, 15.04 or Vivid Vervet. The server and cloud crowd are all abuzz, tearing this baby down to see what it can do. But for the desktop folks - not so much. About all you read is that the new desktop is mainly cosmetic changes: that Unity's color scheme is now purple, which isn't quite true - to my eyes, there's some orange in there too - and that a few things have been moved back to where they used to be. Other than that, everyone complains that this vervet is nothing more than lipstick on a unicorn, as Utopic Unicorn was Ubuntu's last release.
