Thats not correct. Ubuntu 13.04 and 12.10 before it do not have Unity 2D, and Unity 3D is still not nearly as accessible as Unity 2D. There are still bugs with navigating the dash and the launcher, to the point where I would not recommend it for day to day use for most users. GNOME shell 3.6 is known to be quite usable. It is quite easy to be productive under GNOME shell 3.6, having almost everything at your fingertips. I don't think you get wireless network strength though, but I think thats a small sisue, and newer versions of the shell will likely have this fixed.
