Well, that's why Ubuntu has LTS versions and extended support to 5 years 
for this one, so people who need stability can plan migration on a 5 
years period, you still have to deal with changes but that's true for 
most OSes.

You also assume that
- what you used before was "meet(ing) customer needs" better than Unity, 
it might be true for you or your customer, it doesn't mean your case is 
the most common one in the world
- companies care much about the desktop "chrome"...often they don't, 
they care about the services and softwares they run, performances, stability
- that choise is taken away from you, it's not, Unity got added, 
gnome-shell got added, still gnome-panel (gnome classic) is still 
available are xubuntu, kubuntu, etc.

Nothing also stop you to run lucid for another year if you are happy 
with it, it's still supported, and maybe revisit options then...
