The favorites bar is the left bar and where are the most used applications and those that we previously selected as favorite applications.

Likewise, it is also customizable even in the color, the background of the Dash, This is the blurred background that we can see when we look for an application in the list of applications.

    Unity 5? If version 12.04 comes with Unity 5.2 or 5.4 if I am not mistaken. Ubuntu 12.10 will come with Unity 6.0.

      Thanks friend for your note, I wanted to say that this was the main improvement of the Ubuntu 12 04 desktop with respect to the previous version, 11 10, but the saint has gone to heaven.
      I apologize to everyone for these errors that, thanks to you, I have already tried to correct.
      Thank you again.

    I don't like unity about the fact that the application menus always put them on top of the screen, it doesn't matter if I have a small window open that the menu will be on top, it always ends up unnerving me and I put cairo dock.

     But if that is the version of Unity that the current 12.04 brings… I follow the development of 12.10 closely and at the moment I have not seen any relevant change in Unity.
    But if you have Ubuntu 12.04 installed, everything that comes in the video can be done.

    "Its high level of configuration, stability, speed ..."

    From my personal experience, I can say that this is precisely what unity is not.

    Some may like it or work, I despair that it works so badly while KDE or Xfce are great.

      Well, as life is, the one that despairs me is KDE, while Unity is great for me, as always everything is a matter of taste.

    These news are from January and Ubuntu 12.04. The version that will come in 12.10 is Unity 6.0. At this time there are no major changes yet beyond performance improvements and bug fixes.
