Ubuntu aims high with a new feature

The guys behind the Linux distro Ubuntu has made a HUD or Heads Up Display, looking to change how you interact with the operating system.

The new HUD has been made to blend into everything you do, in what looks to be a new seemless way of doing things. The thought is that rather then using the mouse and flip through menus looking for actions, you just type it and the HUD pops down a list of possible matches as you type, select the correct one and the command is executed. If this is as seemless and work like the video shows us, well then it’s brilliant… it truly is

This is scheduled for launch with the new Ubuntu 12.04 on April 26, while we wait you can check out the video of how it works yourself
