I have Unity on one box, I think I mentioned it, and I don't think
it's too bad, but there are a few things that annoys me. Most of them
are at a detail level, but they still annoy me, like the upper panel
with no auto-hide (and it seems like it will never happen), I can no
longer put drawers in the upper panel (something that I use very much
in Ubuntu 10.10), and I always need a few extra clicks to reach my
files with Unity than with my current Gnome 2 setup. I am sure I would
prefer Unity on a touch-pad (or whatever they are called in English),
but I don't have one at the moment. I haven't tested KDE 4.7 yet, not
much anyway, but it feels like KDE is a little bit ahead of Unity at
the moment. I tried an early KDE 4 version, the one that came with
OpenSUSE 11.2 I think, but it crashed all the time, but hopefully they
ironed out the worst bugs now.
I am still a Gnome person though, and I think KDE is too much like
Windows for my taste. And to be honest, whatever we think about it,
it's only a matter of taste and nothing more.

Anyway, I am fully satisfied with this thread now, so I think it's
time to close it. Thanks everyone, for all your ideas and views!
