Ubuntu Unity Remix, the name of the new official flavor?

Ubuntu with Unity

From almost the first moment in which Canonical communicated the news of the abandonment of Unity and its change for Gnome, there were many voices that augured a new official flavor. An official flavor that would have Unity as the main desktop and that would be supported by developers outside of Canonical.

Yunit is the most solid project within the various forks that have been born from Unity and it seems that Ubuntu Unity Remix will be the name of the official flavor that this fork contains or Canonical's abandoned desktop.

We may not see this new flavor between the Ubuntu 18.04 releases but we will see it during the next year 2018. The first stones for its launch have already been laid. Canonical has given the go-ahead for the Ubuntu brand and logo to be used in this official flavor and many leaders of other projects have offered their help to launch this new official flavor. Among them stands out the figure of Martin Wimpress, the leader of Ubuntu MATE.

So it seems that the only thing left is to get organized and gradually create a version of Ubuntu with Unity as the main desktop. Ubuntu Unity Remix is ​​the most voted name for this new official flavor. This is because the rest of the flavors have used the “Remix” nomenclature during the first versions of the official flavor. It already happened with Ubuntu Gnome, with Ubuntu Budgie and with Unity it could also be.

I personally think that Unity has reached the heart of many Ubuntu users and creating an official flavor based on Unity would be logical and almost natural. In any case, it seems that the next version of Ubuntu, Ubuntu 18.04 will not have this official flavor, something interesting because this would make the first version of Ubuntu Unity Remix based on an LTS version.

    I always read around that they hated Unity, that it was the worst, that he should go back to gnome and etc. And now that he is no longer the official, everyone loves him? But what the fuck?

      Of course many have hated Unity, Ubuntu, and Canonical.
      But there are also those who have defended Ubuntu, Unity and Canonical a lot.
      I already have an installation with Ubuntu = Unity Remix, I hope it goes ahead.

    I don't know, I'm crazy to get a separate disk and try this operating system. For now, linux mint. Nor have I touched it so to speak. It's super practical ...

    It is a way to continue with the convergence project in an indirect way without having to receive criticism and blows that were sometimes very exaggerated.

    I have been a Unity user for 3 years and I liked its functionality, especially in 16: 9 screens, but Ubuntu Mate added Mutiny to its desktop, which is a mix of Gnome 2 with Unity, the truth is that I liked it more than Unity , and above it consumes less resources, the system is very stable, it has a very friendly community, I prefer Ubuntu Mate. Greetings…
