I actually quite like Unity. It has a few rough edges at the moment, but
hopefully that'll be sorted out before the final release. I'll be really
excited when they finally release the Application menu replacement
thing, will make it feel a big bit better (I think anyway)

I also think having the menu on the left will work better on multiple
monitors. Hopefully will make having two monitors a bit more seamless,
not having a bar on one and not the other.

However, as others have said.... we shall see...
