In Edubuntu, we need to make Unity an optional installation rather than
by default. Unity is already an installation option from the installer
via a Ubiquity plugin, we're sticking with the classic desktop by
default since it's better suited for LTSP and currently offers better

Unity is currently marked as depends in ubuntu-desktop, which
edubuntu-desktop depends on. If it were marked as recommends it should
allow Edubuntu to ship it and only install it if the user selects it,
without negatively affecting anything else.
