In the past I have commented on how GNOME Shell's redesign is heading towards what Canonical's Unity looks like currently. Well, today a reader, Frederico Araújo, left a very interesting side-by-side comparison of GNOME Shell during its initial stage and now. He also added comparison with Unity. It is a very interesting comparison and we thought we'd share it. Do leave your thoughts in the comments.
