Canonical Plans to Fork GNOME

At the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Florida this week, Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth announced that Ubuntu’s default user interface will be Unity shell rather than GNOME.

Unity shell is a fork of GNOME that Canonical is customizing for Ubuntu.

“The move reflects Ubuntu’s growing divergence from the standard upstream GNOME configuration and effort to differentiate itself with a distinctive user experience,” reported Ars Technica’s Ryan Paul.
