Well dang. There's been so much discussion about it that I hadn't realized it was so confined. I just assumed it was something everyone knew because exciting news tends to spread. Of course, there's something to be said for keeping threads on-topic. I guess the reason it only came up in that thread is because that's the topic of that thread, and whenever someone wanted to talk about Unity they went to that thread to say it, because that's what it's for. I suppose people could go around announcing the platform change in unrelated threads, but that seems like spam to me. As for it not being mentioned on the front page, that caught me by surprise a little, but I guess Jay doesn't want to make an announcement until he has something more concrete to show. It really does seem wrong that something this important could happen without a regular forumite like you hearing about it, but I can't really think of a solution, either.
