Ubuntu Unity 23.04 presents the new Unity 7.7 dash and some aesthetic tweaks, among other news

Unity 23.04

rudra saraswat has given us a new version of the Ubuntu flavor it maintains. What this April 2023 is Unity 23.04And I have to start by congratulating you. When Unity came out in 2010, Canonical decided to stab good performance in the back, and many of us ended up hating this graphical environment. Now, some 13 years later and not being semi-forced to use it, things look very different, and a lot of it lies with the young developer.

This Unity looks little like the original. It's much better designed, and the performance, well, coming from where it came from tastes like blessed glory. Now it is an option to consider that can compete with other flavors like Ubuntu Budgie. Although, from my point of view, I think the design of the system tray widgets needs to be improved, but step by step; this is the first version is to use Unity 7.7, and surely things will be polished with the passage of time.

To upgrade from a previous version, it is worth following our tutorial on how to do it from terminal. Although they have many differences, Ubuntu Unity 23.04 also has similarities to Ubuntu 23.04, so what works on one should work on the other. It may take a while for updates to go live for existing installations. To install from scratch, the new ISO is available on the following button:
