I'd like to share this sentiment made by Philip.  Unity is not perfect and I
did not expect it to be considering the huge amount of effort that went in
just to get it as far as it has already come.  I am finding Unity much more
productive that the "classic" desktop and with some ideas from OMG Ubuntu
have added a few missing pieces.

I have not had any problems using any applications, find the global menu
very intuitive to use and very quick, love the additional indicators that
have been created since the release and am really amazed at how much work is
going on around Unity.

I have set up Unity for a whole range of people, from my girlfriend, to work
colleagues and people looking for something nice to use on their PC.  They
all love and made no issue about it not looking like the last version.

Thank you
