While I am inclined to agree with a lot of Liam Proven's largely negative linked review of Gnome 3, I think it's important to acknowledge that there are 6 desktop environments to choose from across the "%buntu" family, which is more than any other distro offers (as far as I'm aware). They are all user-configurable to a greater or lesser extent - some hugely so. If you find one DE just doesn't float your boat, at least one of the others surely will if you spend a little time experimenting with all the config options.

Too much choice isn't always a good thing, though. I've been asked a number of times "what does Linux look like?". When I explain that there is no one standard "look" it actually rings alarm bells to some people who associate choice with complexity. Corporate environments in particular seem to prefer standardisation. You can get alternative theme packs for Windows, but the fact that you rarely encounter them tells a story.
