Plenty of us have moved away from the standard ubuntu build post unity because it does not really fit in with the way we work: its just not efficient to use and it "seems" slow.
This appears to have led to a rash of comments about "hating" Ubuntu. Surely this is over the top. We may not yet like unity: but Canonical is taking a bet on the future direction of the OS market and they may yet be proved right. They still support KDE and other window managers so what is the real issue?
Personally I'm liking Gnome Shell quite a lot and its really no bother to staple this onto your standard distro if you want.
