And it will be good!  Yesterday's release of Alpha 1 is looking so 
stable already that I have installed it and will attempt to use it as my 
main desktop throughout Alpha and Beta cycles. Obviously it will sync 
with my existing 11.10 just in case ...  But this way, I will be able to 
test in a better way, and enjoy the process.  I would have liked to see 
12.04 being more configurable Unity-wise than it's going to be, but 
otherwise, I've got used to it and like it.  From my point of view, it's 
great to have the same appearance on my desktop and netbook.  Nothing 
gets in the way, and the equivalent of the old Gnome menus is provided 
in the lenses.

Regards,        Barry.
