Unity Vs. Gnome Shell
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 30, 2013
This should be easy, I'm trying to figure out what I want to use, Unity or Gnome Shell. Could somebody tell me the pros and cons of both, what will Unity bring to the table that Gnome won't and what will I lose using Unity instead of Gnome, and vice versa, thanks.
Ubuntu tweak vs Gnome tweak tool
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2012
Can anyone clarify the difference between 'Ubuntu tweak' & 'Gnome tweak tool' and whether one would be more suitable than the other for installing on ubuntu 12.04 (unity).
I have used Ubuntu tweak and it seems to work ok. I like the adwaita theme but that seems only available if using the gnome DE.
Thanks for any advice!
Unity vs GNOME 3 vs GNOME Classic vs Cinnamon

Which better? I means the lesser memory consumption.
By the way, in my Ubuntu 12.04:
When I clicked Firefox (FF)'s Icon, Firefox's window will show-up.
And if I download a file, a download's window will show-up.
But if I minimize the FF's window, I unable to maximize back again by clicking FF's Icon.
I'd tried to minimize the download's window in order for having my FF's window back. But it cannot. The window, which will be show up when I click the FF's Icon is download's window only.
So, I choose a file, which downloaded => right-click => go to Download page.
And the FF's window will show up again.
Is this normal?
If not, how can it be fixed?

Unity vs Gnome 3
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 29, 2011
I have Ubuntu 11.04, and I want to know whether I should use Unity or Gnome 3. Which one do you think is better? The only experience in Ubuntu I have is with Gnome 2 and Unity 2D, but I got a new Netbook yesterday and it has a 3d graphics card. Which one should I use, or should I stick with Gnome 2? What are the pros and cons of each shell?

The demo consisted of some thumbnails with some tag (or something like that), and they could be filtered based on a criteria. Just like filtering the list applications in Unity (or Gnome Shell). It had a very nice effect too. Unfortunately I have forgotten the library name. :(
Does anyone know of something like this?
ubuntu 14.04 gnome vs ubuntu 14.04 unity
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 19, 2015
I was wondering what is the best desktop environment for ubuntu.
I've read a lot of reviews and watched videos on youtube of the comparison. Most of the reviews/videos says that Unity has a lot of problems and is slower than gnome, but also most videos/reviews are from 2012/2013.
So what's the state in Ubuntu 14.04 does Unity still have a lot problems? and is it still slower than gnome?
Gnome shell vs ubuntu unity
location: linuxexchange.com - date: October 22, 2014
They are both using Gnome desktop environment. Unity is plugin into compiz.
Gnome shell into mutter. They does basically the same in term of what they are for. But if they are both using Gnome desktop environment, what is the example of functionality from Gnome DE they are both using? I thought that the desktop environment is responsible for what we see on the screen, but it now looks like it is actually that shell.
QUESTION: What that desktop environment does if UI is handled via that shell (unity for instance)? For instance adding app icon on desktop is achieved via that shell, right? So DE does what?
I am asking because i want to know what is possible to do via those plugins into compiz for instance (eg. modification to unity) and what can't be done, because it is responsibility of desktop environment.
Gnome 3 vs Gnome Shell vs Unity
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 28, 2011
Please excuse my ignorance, but I need to get it straight. I've been reading and trying to find out more about these three new desktop environments, but still am rather confused.
I have had Unity on my netbook for a couple of months now and know it inside out (more or less by now). The problem is: what is the main difference between Gnome 3 and Gnome Shell?
To my understanding Gnome 3 will be a continuation of the panelled Gnome we are so used to? But then I read the panels will be gone forever, so I'm confused again... Gnome Shell is somewhat similar-looking to Unity, but I haven't had a chance to try it properly yet.
Gnome 3 vs Gnome 2 vs Unity vs Kde

I think Unity is horrible, Gnome 2 ok, Gnome 3, a little bit better than ok, and Kde is BEAST!!!
