The Day The Desktop Died

A reinterpretation of Don McClean's"American Pie"

A long, long time ago

Before Ubuntu sank so low

I used to like to dabble, just like you

I'd modify the menu part

Or quickly change the desktop art

And maybe even write a script or two

But then last winter changes came

And desktops wouldn't look the same,

Canonical announced with lots of pride

Ubuntu had a new design

And that made April twenty-nine

The day the desktop died

And so I'm singing

Bye, bye to the Real GUI

Now the desktop is a toybox for the Cloud in the sky

You can't work YOUR way and you'd better not try

They decided that the desktop will die

They're waiting for the desktop to die
