The 10.10 Unity has several well known problems, especially with scaling 
to underpowered hardware.  While I'm sure the devs appreciate as much 
feedback as they can (if you wish to file bugs that are not already on 
bugzilla,) your best course for yourself is probably to install 10.04 
until the next release cycle.
