Bug Description

On https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/desktop/ there is the following question: "How does this fit with Unity 8 and the convergent desktop?" that reads this:

 "Unity 8 is the codebase that will eventually bring all projects under the same convergent interface, it is the future of Ubuntu and this feature will work there as well in due time. Note that you can test Unity8 as a technology preview in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS."

A couple things that could possibly be improved:
 1. "Unity 8 is the codebase that will eventually bring all projects under the same convergent interface" could be more specific. Ubuntu itself is a wide project, and it's a little bit misleading to say "all projects" when referring to Unity 8 on the developer site.
 2. "it is the future of Ubuntu and this feature will work there as well in due time" - again, a little vague. The part about "work there as well in due time" is fine, it should just be more specific about "it is the future of Ubuntu" (maybe "it is the future of the Ubuntu ecosystem" or something like that) and "and this feature" (it's not *just* a feature, is it?).
 3. "Note that you can test Unity8 as a technology preview in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS." - "Unity8" should be two words.

It might possibly also be helpful to link installation instructions when referencing the technology preview, and maybe even Michael Hall's dogfooding blog post.

A lot of good points raised here. The page needs to be changed quite a lot as it's now a springboard to snapcraft.io, hence I won't address the above right now but I'm keeping it in mind, thank you for this!
