I have found Unity a very enjoyable experience overall.
I quickly got used to and now really like the Unity desktop for my netbooks
- although when I first saw pictures of Gnome3 and Unity it didnt appeal.
Using the beta versions was an interesting experience and was amazed how
quickly improvements were made. After using Unity for a while now I dont
plan on switching back to the desktop or older Netbook desktop on my
I find Unity fast and responsive on the whole - even on a simple Asus Eee
netbook. The only thing that is a fraction slow is the drawing of the
application and file & folders. This does not detract much as I have a
button for nautilus and my favorite apps all in the Unity launcher.
A useful feature would be to have the Zeitgeist powered apps/doc search in
the top horizontal panel, as a quick launcher and file search.
My thanks to everyone involved in the Unity / netbook remix for all their
hard work (especially with a shortened deadline this time).
