I'm intrigued by this. I've so far found that Unity breaks far fewer of 
my assumptions and habits than Gnome3 does. The biggie with Gnome 3 for 
is the workspace management, but the common criticisms apply to each - 
neither has a wonderfully fast or easy menu and neither has much in the 
way of configuration options.

Ah yeah, I've been going back-and-forth for a bit - I spend just long 
enough with one to forget all the niggly bits that irritated me about 
the other and switch back.

I suspect that once I've 'fixed' the workspaces in Gnome3 I'll stick 
with it, but I'm still having trouble seeing the benefit of either over 
Gnome 2.
