Re: Is Ubuntu Phone and Unity dead?


Also Unity 7 is not going away *right now*. It will be maintained at least until 2021 (End of life of 16.04) and may even stay in the repos after that. But there will probably not be any new features.

As Fabio said, UBports will continue development on Ubuntu Touch. Also Unity 8 will live on under the name Yunit. UBports and yunit.io will collaborate to keep it alive, both on mobile and desktop devices.

You can follow the development of https://yunit.io/ and https://ubports.com/ for community driven efforts on that.

On gnome shell you can add the extension "dash to dock" and put it on the left to have a unity-like desktop.

Best regards,

    Is it possible to make Gnome interface to look like Ubuntu Unity
    (launcher, dash and top panel with indicator)?

    I hope, that Ubuntu Unity distro will live. Where can I sign petition?
