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.
