Hello David and Barry
I'd just say 'give it a try' as well. Unity is actually pretty good with
a keyboard as well. If you have a screen that is 768px or more high then
try pressing and holding the Super/Windows key to see the keyboard
In the Ubuntu 11.10 release, it took me about a week of normal use
before Unity 'disappeared' into the background like a good interface should.
