Ubuntu, The Middle East, Spring 2012

Precise is in Beta 2.

Unity and Nux's support of RTL is in the works and not yet released.

That means RTL users get an LTR Unity interface when their hardware allows Unity.

In order to prevent widespread chaos, a temporary solution would make a fallback from Unity to Unity 2D for RTL locales.

This must be done before precise is released in order to provide a reasonable experience for RTL users in Ubuntu precise.
