Ive been following unity 8 for a while but now i can say its nearly ready…
i would blog more but i think micheal hall got it all covered here!
im just looking into not using libertine and just running apps like so from a terminal

I found it quite fast, quite solid and just a tad rough round the edges, bit cant see no reason why unity 8 wont be available soon on the desktop. I find this great bearing in mind ive been using the phone for around 2 years and now the tablet, I can use the same OS im familiar with on my laptop as well! Check out a quick update video.
