Isn't there a clean way to just base both the Unity2D and 3D on Qt, on a way that uses hardware acceleration when available? That would be a lot cleaner, if feasible!
Yes, it would.
But Canonical claims that there is absolutely no accessibility on Linux and they are the heroes to provide it finally which – according to them – makes the Nux-based Unity necessary: http://kamikazow.wordpress.com/2011/...6/#comment-578 (J. Riddel is a Canonical employee)

I tried getting along with Unity but it didn't work out. Two friends of mine and I have yet to find out how to even configure that thing. The most ridiculous thing is the panel on the left part of the screen. I couldn't figure out how to move it to another place or better yet make it autohide.
the autohide (well something better: intelli-hide) is already working in 11.04 alpha. Works very nicely, but of course not for daily use yet
Am I the only one who thinks this is a terribly confusing name, given that Unity is also the name of a popular game dev platform (if you're on Windows or Mac for now)? Why was this sort of name collision allowed to happen?
i think the worst collisions are the names "windows" and "apples"
