Ubuntu Linux 11.04 now uses the "Unity" user interface, which features a prominent "Task Bar" on the left hand side that acts as both a task manager in addition to a common application launcher. Shown on the desktop is LibreOffice Writer, the word processing program that comes with the new LibreOffice productivity suite which replaces OpenOffice 3 in previous versions of Ubuntu.

Nautilus is still the default file manager although it now uses the context-based menuing system in 11.04.
