The more I look at 12.04, the more I'm coming to that conclusion.

I wish there was a succinct statement of the purpose behind all those
changes to gui, so that based on that I can make the decision. As it
is, I'm forced to decipher their strategy behind it all looking at a
large volume of details, with a significant investment of my time.
As it appears, that investment is likely to be lost...

Ditching Unity (12.04 GUI/desktop?) means ditching Ubuntu, right?

If that turns out to be my conclusion, what would be the logical
migration path for someone with a fairly high-end desktop computer,
who was perfectly happy with 10.04? It would appear I have somewhat
less than one year to decide (10.04 support end-date, April 2013).
