Some exciting news coming out of Ubuntu today. They're finally getting rid of Compiz and unifying their mobile, tablet and desktop UIs.
it is time to start working towards a truly converged Unity implementation, with one implementation supporting all of the different form factors. For this, the Unity Next project is the logical evolution of what was started for the desktop, transitioned to the TV and propagated for the phone and the tablet. It unifies the efforts spent on Unity in general and aims for convergence into one deliverable for all form factors: phones, tablets, TV's and desktop.
