When Unity was first introduced I was among the "haters" but since 13.10 
and a lot of the bugs being worked through I could not go back to menu's 
within menus again!

On the subject heading +1 for copy.com, if like me you use the cmd line 
not the GUI the fact it no longer plays nice with Unity is not a big 
problem, but having said that if enough of us get together and moan at 
copy.com then maybe it will be sorted and we can all enjoy it equally ;¬)
