Re: Does anybody really care about Unity/Lomiri?

> Unity is just the macOS desktop, but with Windows keystrokes. If you know how to drive Windows with the keyboard, it's great. ... Most people don't know the Windows keystrokes, though, and don't know how to use the Windows desktop _well_. ... If you don't, GNOME is keyboard-centric and proclaims that fact, and so you can learn all GNOME's new ones and thus drive it. But it doesn't work with the old ones, and neither does KDE, which is one reason I dislike both.

Again: termcap (or some post-Disco equivalent) can map fingers to functions, making "Brand W keystrokes" moot.

But I think in mouse&GUI-world the mis-love for Unity/Gnome runs deeper than mere keystrokes.
