Well, I think the accessibility issues in beta 2 are temporary. As long
as we file bugs with launchpad and let them know what has happened they
should be able to correct the problem as access was working with beta 1
fairly well. Assuming they fix said bugs I'll probably switch to Unity
2D as the access we had a few days ago was acceptable if not exceptional.
Even if they don't fix Unity 2D its not the end of the world. Gnome 3 is
working decently and it is a fairly simple matter to install and
configure Gnome for Ubuntu 12.04. Just set your default desktop to
gnome-classic and you are in business.
