> I agree, we need to let more time to developers and see Unity with more
features. Think too that Mac Os X Lion is dropping a lot of stuff to get
closer to iPad iOS4 too. Will users be disappointed so much ? I don't think,
they only need something simple to use and that works a stable way.

> That is more a problem for older laptops, but think that Unity is first
designed for small netbooks and tablets with poor performances. In any
desktop or workstation, any 20 to 30 €/$ graphic card is a good solution, it
is not too expensive. Do you really think that Unity may need more graphic
power than current desktop effects using Compiz Fusion ? I think that it
will be lighter than a standard Gnome.
