Unity also wasn't my favorite in the beginning...but now after giving it
a chance it's just like any other interface, a way to access the system
and programs easier than to remember text commands.
I upgraded my netbook yesterday and...wow...does it move, everything
went smooth, and feels a bit more snappy, i used the 2D interface on
11.10, but that somehow feels unnecessary now.
I do not use much advanced features so the transition was easy enough.
Over all I think it's much better 11.10.
Unfortunately pains usualy are going hand in hand with most upgrades (XP
to VISTA, XP to UBUNTU, etc, etc :) ) But then how are we to learn new
things if we keep using ubuntu 04.* or *shudder* dos 4.0.

When working on a computer you have to know enough:
To fake what you don't know.
Google what you can't fake.
How (and when) to 'motivate' the computer to do what Google won't tell.
